Looking far too good to drink, this cappuccino artwork by Korea-based barista Kangbin Lee expands perceptions of what's possible when it comes to creating an artistically beautiful cup of coffee.

The coffee artworks, categorized as Cremart, range in style to include classic imagery from famous paintings as well as images from pop culture including Disney characters and video game heroes.

While some might believe the creations on the coffees seen on the barista's Instagram account are too good to be handmade, the intricate detailing that the artist puts into his work has been well-documented to show how he goes about the process. The cappuccino artwork is achieved with food-based paints in order to create scenes that look as though they belong in a museum rather than the coffeehouse.
