The increasing popularity in 'latte art' has inspired Japanese barista and artist Kohei Matsuno to take it to the next level in three-dimensional forms.
Like most latte art, Matsuno uses a combination of foam and milk to sculpt his masterpieces, but he is much more restricted with regard to time, noting that there is only a five minute window in which the the art can be successfully designed. Working diligently, Matsuno notes that his tool of choice is a toothpick, which allows for optimal precision. The three dimensional works of art have become the latest creative craze in Japan, and Matsuno has set the new bar in latte art.
Latte art is demonstrably popular with this new ‘craze.' Persons are willing to pay for these edible sculptures. The likelihood of this making its way overseas is likely due to its recent popularization.
