Korean “coffee artist” Kangbin Lee has become a venti Internet star thanks to latte creations that seize inspiration from the beloved big-screen extraterrestrial, van Gogh’s swirly “Starry, Starry Night” and Disney characters like Ariel, Belle and Bambi, among others.
Kangbin’s term for his technique is “Cremart” and it allows him to paint intricate works of art directly onto the drinks. The burning question isn’t whether your local barista can do this? Of course, he or she can’t. The question is whether these miniature mug-based masterpieces — there are more on Instagram — are too beautiful to drink.
Get served one of these and you’re seriously sipping pretty.
