Styrofoam cups as a canvas for art? You’ve done it and so have countless others too at coffee shops. Doodling on cups has become the fashion of the bored individual sipping a cup of Joe. This handcrafted Styrofoam cups were created by Cheeming Boey with his trusty Sharpie pen. The Malaysian born computer animator has a vast collection of these disposable cups littered in his house. His illustrated cups were displayed in a gallery and he vows to become the Styrofoam Cup King.
Styrofoam – or, rather, the foam products most people refer to as “Styrofoam” – gets a bad rap: It’s cheap. Disposable. Never degrades. The coffee cup you toss away today will still be polluting some ocean or landfill after your grandchildren die.
