Maria A. Aristidou is a freelance artist from Larnaca. She currently divides her time between Cyprus and Liverpool, United Kingdom.
Maria uses a very unique medium for her illustrations! She uses different coffee blends in order to illustrate her favourite characters from movies, television and videogames just as if using watercolours.
Maria studied BA Fine Art Printmaking at the Manchester Metropolitan University and also completed a master’s degree in Arts Health at the University of Central Lancashire.
Her works have been featured in many popular sites, such as: borepanda, geeksaresexy, designtaxi, viralnova, laughingsquid, inquisitr, abcnews, yahoonews, additional acknowledgement by Hugh Laurie himself and many more!
Her main inspiration comes from pop culture phenomena, internet trends, movie characters and science fiction.
We are thrilled to have such a unique artist taking part in Cyprus Comic Con this year and we hope you are all looking forward to seeing her work up close this coming August!
