Diana Biernat aka crade.one is a German based, 29-year old coffee painter. About two years ago, she discovered coffee as the optimal painting medium for her when she hit rocks in the creative phase and was on the lookout for a new direction. An article about Parisian artists in the 17th century who were using tea, wine and coffee as paint was the impulse she needed - she was instantly intrigued by the technique & the challenge of a limited monochrome color range. Ever since then, painting with coffee became her passion. Her usual subject are her favorite musicians, being a huge music lover and constantly listening to music, especially while painting. Usually she re-brews used coffee grounds and uses different strengths of coffee for the shading.
Every painting comes with a custom made wood frame which are glazed with coffee as well.
