Negrense watercolorist Edbon Sevilleno recently conducted a coffee and muscovado painting workshop at SM City-Bacolod using coffee grounds from mall cafes.

Sevilleno said the art of painting with coffee dates back to the time when coffee started to be widely used in Europe.

Coffee was first introduced to Europe in Hungary when the Turks invaded Hungary at the Battle of Mohacs in1526. Within a year, coffee had reached Vienna by the same Turks who fought the Europeans at the Siege of Vienna (1529).

Sevilleno said tea was earlier used in painting. The Chinese were noted to use tea to color their paper and create a sepia look to the background of their paintings, said.

The artist has an ongoing display of his works together with artists of Artfull Art Gallery + Café at the northeast atrium of SM City-Bacolod as part of the mall exhibit featuring the Sustainability and Resilience initiatives of SM Prime Holdings, Inc. and the Department of Science and Technology.*
