South Korean Barista Lee Kang-Bin Takes Coffee Art To A Whole New Level, Renders Masterpieces Atop Customers’ Drinks

Oh my gosh this is soooo cool! I am reblogging this! Thanks for sharing!

I know, this is technically not  bookish, but for me books and coffee (and tea) are irrevocably linked, so I had to share! This artist’s talent I find so amazing! To be sure, before one of his masterpieces was consumed, you certainly would want to take a picture of it to forever preserve the memory. I am so amazed!


“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.

Art Made From Books

Although this is bit off the beaten track for this blog, since it still dealt with the subject of books, I thought it was kind of interesting topic. I found these videos to illustrate. I know a lot of readers, after reading a book, wish to get rid of it. Maybe these artists can provide... Continue Reading →
