Cheeming Boey, an artist from Newport Beach, CA, creates his art using a Sharpie and recycled Styrofoam cups. Ever since 2006, Boey started drawing on foam cups as a hobby and has now turned the project into a serious business. Each cup takes a few hours to several months to create. His work was recently on view at the Brea Art Gallery from June 6 to July 9 as part of the show called: “Repurpose, Reuse, Recycle”. Check out his flickr page for more sytrofoamy wonderfulness…. Here is a link to a good interview about his life and influences. His website, at http://iamboey.com/ features his journal in a comic series …very cute!
His cups are available for purchase from his etsy shop and range in price from $140.00 to $250.00 at http://www.etsy.com/shop/boyobsolete. I suspect they are a good investment!
