Arkady Kim created the world’s largest coffee bean mosaic using one million beans that were roasted and then glued one-by-one to a giant panel.

Artist and sculptor Arkady Kim recently created the world’s largest coffee bean mural in Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure in Moscow. The artwork, called ‘Awakening,' measured about 30 square meters and was made up of one million coffee beans, weighing 397 pounds. The beans were roasted to get different shades and then arranged one-by-one by Kim and a team of five assistants, taking them twelve days to complete. This exploration of an unusual medium earned Kim a Guinness World Record for the largest coffee bean mural in the world.
