Coffee Drawings

How many stories can be created from a splash of coffee?

On the occasion of the new illy Art Collection, illy presents a live performance by the artist Max Petrone who will create Coffee Drawings, an artwork inspired by coffee.

In the wonderful frame of Triennale of Milano from 17 to 22 April, during Salone del Mobile, Max Petrone will tell the stories that can be created form a splash of coffee.

Leave your own sign on pages stained with coffee, telling your personal story that will converse with the artist’s ones in the atelier.

The new illy Art Collection

Max Petrone tells us six tales, with a painting technique that develops without any preplanned design. There are no complex frameworks or
sophisticated elaborations, but only simplicity and playfulness.
