Cheeming Boey uses Sharpies and disposable coffee cups (an unconventional canvas) to bring his art to life. He truly makes trash to treasure!

Growing up in Malaysia, Cheeming Boey felt that since he wasn't strong in math, he'd better make up for it in art. I think he's pretty talented.

hBoey booked a showing at a gallery in Laguna Beach, California and priced his art at $180 a cup. The showing did wildly well.

Seven years ago, Boey gave a friend one of his cups as a gift and said don't throw it away it will be worth a lot of money one day!" According to his friend, his girlfriend made him throw it out. They are no longer together.

Cheeming Boey with his works of art! Every piece he works on must be perfect. One mess up he starts the process over on a new cup.

His samurai-inspired cup art has sold for more than $1200. That's on a canvas most people consider trash!

As a fan of the show "Breaking Bad" this series of cups is my favorite!
