I don’t drink coffee (love hot chocolate though) but the images caught my eye. The artwork is sublime, enjoy!
“CreamArt,” as described by South Korean coffee shop owner Lee Kang-bin, has had its bar raised in recent years, not least because Lee himself has been creating miniaturised imitations of world-famous masterpieces, including Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” and Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night”, as well as an array of pop culture icons, e.g. Captain Jack Sparrow, Aladdin, and E.T., to name but a few, on top of customers’ latte drinks.
Given that coffee consumption has almost doubled in South Korea since 1990, according to the International Coffee Organisation, it is no surprise that Lee Kang-bin, the owner of Seoul’s “Café C. Through”, has come to prominence in the world of coffee art for his intricate, mesmerising designs. The only hitch is that customers have to wait a mere 15 minutes for his artistry to present itself.
