Iraqi artist Othman Toma, Ice-Creams Paintings

Iraqi artist Othman Toma, Ice-Creams Paintings
Ice-Creams Paintings Iraqi artist Othman Toma creates these paintings using melted ice-creams.  If you look at his site he usually draws with pencils or paints with watercolours, these paintings are proof that you can produce art in a variety of unconventional ways.  There are some out there that say that these paintings, could not have been painted with the ice-creams, Othman says that, that is what he used as his paint, maybe next time he should do a time lapse video to prove them wrong.
