South Korean barista ups coffee art to masterpiece levels

Yes, that's definitely Vincent Van Gogh's "The Starry Night" in a coffee cup.


The stunning art in a cup is made by South Korean barista Lee Kang Bin, who is credited by website The Perfect Daily Grind as the inventor of "cream art."

He showcased his work at the Cafe Show in Korea in 2016, where he was quoted as saying, "I wanted to surpass the limitations of traditional latte art by introducing colors and a wider range of designs. I think it’d be a great addition to the art bar section of the WLAC (World Latte Art Championship) and I hope to breathe new life into an otherwise isolated path in the industry."

Lee Kang Bin, 26, is the owner of  Cafe C.Through and according to a report by Mashable, he's been working in the industry for 10 years. — AT, GMA News
