Another unique aspect of espresso art is its inclusion of people and environments within the artwork. Unlike other coffee art which focuses on the graphic and sensory qualities of the beverage itself, espresso artwork depicts the archetypical association of an unique lifestyle of relaxation and class that has become an iconic part of this type of coffee, a lifestyle which is highly appealing to audiences and art enthusiasts around the world.
One thing that espresso art does have in common with other forms of coffee art is warm color schemes. Like other examples of this art category, espresso art is primarily depicted in warm colors such as browns, reds, yellows, and oranges. A common style for this type of artwork is flat, representational depictions but three-dimensional classically appealing styles are also available.
Espresso art is used by interior designers for both business and home decor. Unlike most coffee art, which is primarily displayed in kitchens, dining areas, and cafes, espresso art is suitable for any professional venue where strong drinks are served. Because of this quality, restaurants and bars also use espresso art in their interior design schemes.
