Ruby Silvious Whimsical Miniature Paintings On Used Tea Bags

Ruby Silvious is a visual artist and graphic designer, whose recent work includes experimenting on recycled and found materials. She draws, paints, prints and collages moody, evocative and sometimes whimsical art on used teabag paper. On January 3, 2015, she started a project called 363 Days of Tea, a visual daily record of her impression of the moment, using the emptied-out tea bag as her canvas, and altering it to create a new work of art every day for 363 days.
‘The used tea bag is not very attractive. But while you may see a soggy, stained tea bag, I see a blank canvas. … People have this notion of what traditional art should be. I think reimagining the discarded as art inspires new forms of creativity. I hope that people who view my art are changed in some way, perhaps with a renewed belief in the art of the possible.’ – Ruby Silvious
Ruby Silvious will be part of a group exhibition, titled ‘Deemed a Canvas’, hosted at the Paradigm Gallery, Philadelphia from Jan 26 through Feb 17, 2018.
