Artist uses coffee to draw portrait of Saudi cop Jibran Awaji

Ouhoud Abdallah drew Saudi policeman Jibran Awaji using only coffee as an alternative to ink

Saudi artist has taken inspiration from the recent operation in Riyadh when one Saudi policeman risked his life to kill two wanted ISIS extremists.

Ouhoud Abdallah drew Saudi policeman Jibran Awaji using only coffee as an alternative to ink. People on Twitter quickly began sharing the painting. One video clearly shows how she was able to transmit the details of the face in a realistic way.

Ouhoud Abdallah told Al Arabiya.net that she painted the picture in a just an hour, indicating that the painting is a reaction to the courage displayed by Corporal Awaji when he was shooting at the extremists.

Ouhoud said that her followers named her the Painter of the Nation, since a lot of her work is a reaction to national events and achievements.

Awaji is currently recovering in a hospital in Riyadh after he was shot in the leg by one of the extremists during the raid to capture them.
