Tokyo-based artist Mariya Suzuki created cup art by transforming plain coffee cups into images of cityscapes, portraits and street scenes. This collection titled 'Drawing to Go' was inspired by the artist's frequent visits to coffee shops.

When the artist realized that the plain takeout cups provided a unique canvas, she immediately began utilizing the empty spaces. Bringing colorful scenes of everyday objects provides a creative outlet for this talented artist. By utilizing an existing canvas like the coffee cups, the artist is essentially upcycling the product she would be purchasing anyway.

The 'Drawing to Go' cup art collection has been displayed in art exhibits and creates a radically different take on everyday surroundings, which others often overlook. In addition to her artistic works, Mariya Suzuki also hosts workshops to inspire others and encourage creativity.
