Artist Paints Miniature Paintings On Tiny Tea Bags

  • Ruby Silvious turns new and used bags of tea into pieces of art.

Art On Tea Bags

Ruby Silvious is a visual artist and graphic designer, whose recent work includes experimenting on recycled and found materials.


In 2015, she started a project called 363 Days of Tea, a visual daily record of her impression of the moment, using the emptied-out tea bag as her canvas, and altering it to create a new work of art every day for 363 days.

Here are some of Ruby’s amazing tea bag paintings.
