Cup O' Art

Boy-Obsolete1 Boy-Obsolete2 Boy-Obsolete3

Cheeming Boey AKA “Boy Obsolete” is a Malaysian born artist currently living in Newport Beach who makes amazing art combining two very simple things - disposable cups and Sharpie. It all started when he was sitting in a coffee shop and began to draw on trashed styrofoam cup because he had no paper. Gradually, he started to draw more and more and getting noticed by people around him for his artful cups.

His cups with the intricate designs and detailed works of art make anywhere from $200 to $1500 a piece. He became "the man behind the cups in Sharpie’s 2011 magazine ad for Sharpie Pen as part of the Start with Sharpie campaign" - Sharpie blog.


The second best green thing that you could do, after using recyclable products, is to transform the un-recycleable into art.

Oh, WOW. I want all of them, in a row, to hold my pencils in a work studio. Or paint brushes...if I had an artistic flair, which I don't. Sadly. :(
