A coffee barista/entrepreneur from South Korea has taken coffee art to a whole new level.
Lee Kang Bin, the 26-year-old owner of Cafe C.Through, can craft anything from post-Impressionism artwork to anime characters as designs that float on coffee. In fact, the art is so good you might think twice before taking a sip for fear of ruining it.
Despite not having any formal training on how to draw, Lee said he developed his skill in making incredible works of art through years of practice, according to Mashable,
According to Lee, he started creating what he now calls “cream art” after about a decade of being a barista.
His artworks, often inspired by movies, politics and holidays, have impressed not only his regular customers but also netizens who have come across some of his works on social media.
With the store’s growing popularity, both coffee and art enthusiasts are now flocking to the cafe just to witness the master craftsman in action.
The talented barista has also begun teaching classes for those who want to learn his secrets.
