FAQ : What is O Ka-Fée ?

O Ka-Fée is the term concerning all my paintings done with coffee. It concerns the way of painting and of obtaining textures with coffee. It's about projections of coffee, which once in stains on the sheet, undergo injections of pigments. (Powder, colorex, watercolor.)

Textures realized by coffee by drying (more or less sweetened) are unique, they are more interesting than those realized with water.
The coffee is a rather complex medium has to master, it's necessary to know its reactions to be able to manipulate it with pigments, we learn it every day.

O Ka-Fée also concern my graphic style and the whole universe which gets free of it. It's for that the term is my own brand. :)

Please, respect my universe and work.

FAQ : Qu'est ce que O Ka-Fée ?

O Ka-Fée est le terme concernant mes peintures réalisées avec pour base de café. Il s'agit de la manière de peindre et d'obtenir des textures réalisées par le café. Dans un premier temps ce sont des projections de café dans lesquelles ensuite on injecte des pigments. (Poudres, colorex, aquarelle.)

Les textures réalisées par le café (plus ou moins sucré et selon la marque.) sont uniques, elles sont plus fortes et intéressantes que celles réalisées avec l'eau.

Le café est un médium complexe a maitriser, il est important de connaître ses réactions afin de les manipuler avec les pigments, on en apprend tous les jours de part ce médium.

O Ka-Fée concerne aussi mon univers et style graphique, ce sont souvent des peintures et univers libres, avec du mouvement et de la poésie.

Merci de respecter mon travail et univers.

Not sure how the bubbly/alcohol texture behind the wings fits, but the rest is marvelous. Love the inkwork, the textures of the paint/coffee as they change between body, hill, wings and sky.

You make me want to experiment in coffee and tea also!
