No art without a glass: a traveler paints coffee cups for a living

Burke Armagan, a self-taught artist and traveler from Turkey, paints pictures on empty coffee cups. Burke usually comes up with something to draw before the trip, but sometimes he gets inspired by the streets and buildings already in place. He hitchhikes and often stops in tent camps, so he has to work in difficult conditions and with a time limit. But the artist himself believes that this is a good experience. 

Burke sells his creations to earn money for travel. He also contributes to social responsibility projects, such as providing food and shelter to Turkey's stray cats and dogs.
