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 protected by copyright. :)

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.

I've probably only written a few critiques before, but I REALLY wanted to do one for this.

First off, I wanted to say that this idea is very original. I have never seen anything like this done before. You captured her very well. It seems like in the top left corner I can see the night sky, and down in the bottom right is the sun. The red in blue in the mane remind me of the Red Bull, and when she gets transformed into a human.

I like the white lines in the darker areas, it makes it pop. The paint (looks like water colour) over top the back adds such personality to this work. You did a fantastic job.

Oh, wow! Ce n'est pas dans la palette de couleurs que tu utilises d'habitude, mais c'est tellement joli! Le mélange du rose et du bleu est superbe!

Je suis curieuse. Est-ce que tu travailles avec un brouillon sur lequel tu peins avec du café, ou Est-ce que tu, comme on dit en chinois, "go coffee happy" sur la toile et puis décide quoi faire avec après? Certaines de tes œuvres sont si bien enchevêtrées avec les taches de café que ça donne l'impression que le tracé de l'image a été conçu en fonction des taches, et non l'inverse. Juste une question que je me posais :P

I used this for my design. Of course, I gave you the credit, but feel free to tell me if you want me to remove it:…

This is gorgeous! And, COFFEE? Wow, I'd never heard of that as a medium before!

The picture is lovely, and it certainly has a dreamy/magical feeling to it. The movie and book were awesome, and your artwork compliments them nicely. Great job!

Love your marvelous use of colours and form, I see more the longer I look. This piece is really fantastical and dreamlike, very emotion inspiring. I also want to say thank you for being a traditional medium artist, watercolour in particular. Nothing can match it.
