363 Days Of Tea: Ruby Silvious Paints Beautiful Pictures On Old Tea Bags

“Perhaps we reveal ourselves too much in small things because we have so little of the great to conceal” - Kakuzō Okakura

New York-based artist Ruby Silvious reuses old tea bags as canvases. On 3 January 2015, Silvious embarked her project 363 Days of Tea. “I don’t plan ahead [what to paint],” she says. “I want to engage people and get them to reimagine discarded objects. I want them to look at tea bags in a different way.”
