"The Coffee Carousel", Marijke Buurlage, 2015
Ink illustration, digitally edited
40 x 30cm
When I think of coffee I automatically link it with three things: socializing, enjoyment and motion. When I started researching for this artwork I came across a picture of a percolator, and somehow it reminded me of a carousel. I decided to make a ‘Coffee Carousel’ that contains the three elements that I mentioned. This ‘Coffee Carousel’ brings people together, gives them enjoyment and keeps them moving (literally). The end result is a bright and happy advertising poster for my imaginary ‘Coffee Carousel’.
