Starbucks iconic mermaid is also mysterious. Who is she? And does she have a secret life? Korean artist Soo Min Kim not only imagined, but created makeovers with markers or paints right on the cups themselves. His fun Starbucks mermaid art has the character in all sorts of roles!
She might have a mundane working life, fetching coffee in the office or enduring subway train crushes during the rush hour. She might also be riding the elevator or even just chatting on the phone! Or she might even be moonlighting as a burglar in the night!
The mermaid also has secret lives as a superhero or a transformer robot. His work is delightful, making us look at ordinary objects like these cups with fresh eyes and leaving us with a smile or two!
