An Artist Who Created Coffee Paintings

There has been a high consumption of the latte art in the South Korea. The South Korea has become a new hub for the latte art scene. The per capita coffee consumption has been increased since 1990. The “Cream Art” has been started by the South Korean barista Lee Kang – bin.

Lee Kang – bin is a master coffee artist who draws intricate designs on the layer of steamed milk that is present on the top of coffee. His beautiful coffee creations consist of miniature imitations of well-known paintings like Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” and “The Scream” by Edvard Munch. The way he cautiously etches the pretty creations into the frothy layer on the top of a coffee is worth watching. He uses cream tinged with a palette of food dyes.

It takes him almost 15 minutes to complete the designer coffee and then it is sold for 10,000 a cup at his shop. His shop name is “Café C. Through” in Seoul.
