There are many different ways to keep a diary, but when it comes to uniqueness, Ruby Silvious, an artist from New York, is top of the class. While the majority of us tend to throw away used tea bags after finishing our tea, Silvious reuses them as canvases for miniature paintings.

“The used tea bag is not very attractive. But while you may see a soggy, stained tea bag, I see a blank canvas,” Silvious explains. “The visual diary records my impression of the moment using the used tea bag as a medium, altered to create a new work of art every day. I draw, paint and collage moody, evocative and sometimes whimsical art on the used tea bag paper.”

Silvious began painting on tea bags back in 2015 to try and push her creative practice and share it on social media with the hope of sparking a different kind of inspiration. “People have this notion of what traditional art should be. I think reimagining the discarded as art inspires new forms of creativity,” claims Silvious.
