Lee Kang Bin, the owner of Cafe C.Through in Korea has been creating latte art designs so elaborate, people can't believe they're not photo shopped. By painting a small spoon with food coloring, the barista can create elaborate foam designs, also using espresso and chocolate for further detailing.

Lee Kang Bin uses coffee as his medium, recreating famous paintings like Starry Night, or designing portraiture of famous movie characters. The barista, who has received no formal training in the fine arts claims that he "wanted to surpass the limitations of traditional latte art by introducing colors and a wider range of designs." The barista's latte art designs breath life into something mundane, encouraging artists to seek inspiration even in the most basic of places.
