Kangbin Lee, a 26 year old from South Korea makes the most beautiful latte art that will ever grace your sight! Lee uses famous paintings as inspiration to create these delightful cups of joe.
From Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” to Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” Lee has wowed many customers with his latte art. But his awesome skills don’t stop at famous paintings.
He can draw or recreate anything from flowers and scenic pictures!
To your favorite Disney character!
So how does one find himself as an artist drawing on foam canvases of cappuccinos and such?
Ready for this one? Lee had not taken any formal drawing classes. He is a previously conscripted military soldier who took an interest in brewing coffee while in service. He made a make shift cafe for the other soldiers with a coffee machine he bought on his own. Since then, he has opened up his own shop called Cafe C. Through.
In an interview with Reuters, he said:
“One time I drew ‘The Starry Night’ and it looked so special as the famous painting placed on top of coffee. After that, lots of people ordered that coffee […] Customers usually ask me to draw their favorite art works.”
