This Art Teacher Creates Portraits Using Household Supplies


Before the lockdown hit and people were forced to sit at home and find ways to entertain themselves, Mahesh Kapse was famous among his students. The art teacher taught at a school in the Indian city of Aurangabad. No one, though, realized what he could do not only with bottles of paint colors and brushes, but with every other household supply and his fingers. The realistic portraits using household supplies such as tomato ketchup left netizens bewildered, and for the right reasons.

Let us all first agree that dipping our fingers in paint and then using them as brushes on canvas is hard enough. To manifest the image in mind in the physical world is not a task many of us can claim to have achieved. How, then, is it possible that Kapse procures his colors from sources of different densities, different consistencies and different behavior? 

Not only has he used ketchup as a medium to create realistic portraits, he also uses items such as turmeric powder, vermillion powder, ultramarine blue, pickles, fruit juice, fruit pulp, dishwashing soap and more – items we can all agree to harbor at our homes.

Only, we didn’t know how utterly multipurpose they were! During his time at art school Kapse would remain top of class, and that is apparent in the fact that it takes him just minutes to create faces out of nothing but thought. When he was forced to shut doors during the outbreak he started posting his portrait videos on TikTok and Instagram as a means to pass his time.

The internet, as it always is, was quick to recognise his talent. Many people including Indian celebrities shared his videos – all bewildered at his talent to turn household items into paint and use them on canvas.

And to be honest, we are too.

Can you see yourself making portraits using household supplies?
