It was created for The Rocks Aroma Festival in Sydney, Australia, and seen by 130,000 people who attended the one-day coffee-lovers event.
Elaine Kelly, from event organisers the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, was delighted with the result.
It measures 20 feet high and 13 feet wide and took a team of eight people three hours to complete. The different colours were created by adding no, little or lots of milk to each cup of black coffee. Each coffee cup was filled with varying amounts of milk to create the different sepia shades of the painting.
“Once we had the idea of creating an image out of coffee cups we searched for something iconic to reproduce – and opted for the most iconic painting in history."

A "vroom" of his own with its stainless-steel counters, halogen lights, and museum-style installations, D.A.D. Garage looks nothing like an everyday, oil-stained garage. Of course not—it belongs to Ralph Lauren, who owns 60 or so of the rarest, most valuable cars in the world, including a 1938 Bugatti coupe, a 1938 Alfa Romeo Mille Miglia roadster, and the world’s only 1930 Mercedes-Benz SSK “Count Trossi” roadster, all in ideal condition and all driven by the designer himself. Lauren shows off his collection of vintage cars to Vanity Fair.
His two-floor garage houses Ferraris from the 1950s, ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘90s, Porsches, Aston Martins, Morgans, Jaguars, “a 1938 Bugatti coupe, a 1938 Alfa Romeo Mille Miglia roadster, and the world’s only 1930 Mercedes-Benz SSK “Count Trossi” roadster.”We want his garage!!!! :-P

Yesterday's News, a brand of cat litter made from recycled paper, put together a do-gooder design challenge in NYC to create eco-friendly pieces made of paper. Designers like Samantha Pleet participated, creating over-the-top pieces that rival any dress made of fabric. Watch Samantha's entire process of creating her super-cute frock below:
Researchers at Imperial College of London and a company called Fabrican
are perfecting an aerosol fabric that can be spritzed onto the body to create T-shirts, dresses, and even pants for those who can never get them tight enough.
The canned couture will be on display this week at the college's Science in Style fashion show.
How does it work? The aerosol technology creates a thin layer of light, textured, nonwoven fibers that have the look of interconnected snowflakes. Fabrican says its benefits include allowing wearers to "personalize their wardrobes in infinite combinations."
According to Fabrican, the sprayed fabric can be peeled off, washed, worn again, perfumed, and even decorated to create patterns. In the demonstrations, researchers create an elaborate dress on a model as well as a white, strapless blouse on a mannequin (watch video below), folding down its edges for a sweet ruffle above the bust. Green scrolls are sprayed on the blouse for decorative impact.
"When I first began this project I wanted to make a futuristic, seamless, quick, and comfortable material," Manel Torres, a Spanish fashion designer and academic visitor at Imperial College said in a statement.
"In my quest to make the fabric, I ended up returning to the earliest principles of the earliest textiles, such as felt, which were also produced by taking fibers and finding a way of binding them together without having to weave or stitch them."
Torres worked with Paul Luckham, a professor of particle technology, to make the fabric. No word on when the product will be available for retail. Watch the amazing videos below for more details!
