Talented artist Ghidaq al-Nizar creatively uses coffee drips and fingers to create beautifully detailed miniature fingerprint paintings. The works of art are made by manipulating the coffee with a paintbrush after a finger has been dipped into it, and transforming the liquid into illustrations of people, trees and animals.

Painting on a canvas size that is no bigger than a finger tip is a challenge for many artist, but a skill that al-Nizar masters effortlessly. The process begins by the artist dipping their finger into a cup of coffee and pressing their finger into a piece of paper. Then using a fine tip brush, more coffee is added and used as paint to add detailed drawings of settings and simple landscapes.
