As an art lover I recently heard the name of Jake Fried. And when I saw his artwork, I was awe struck - for what he had produced with the help of ink, white-out and coffee. Yes I coffee that you and I drink specially when it is as cold as it is at this time of the year with snow falling outside.
My name is Jake Fried - pronounced "freed" not like those greasy potatoes that are fried. I am a freshman in the scholars program at University of Maryland majoring in computer science. I graduated from Ramaz high school in Manhattan, NY. I program computers for fun. That's right, for fun. My other hobbies, when I'm too tired to program, include reading, gaming, tennis and skiing.Scroll down for more of artwork and a few videos.
This is how the hobby of painting develops into innovative art work using different mediums and materials. Jake's use of ink and coffee is really innovative, different and impressive. And I am sure you would agree with me after seeing and watching his paintings and animations.
