A barista in Korea is going viral for his handsome looks and stunningly detailed latte art.
Latte art, a method of carefully pouring steamed milk to form patterns in an espresso shot, is becoming increasingly popular all over the world, and one Korean barista is coming up with more eloquent designs to wow his customers.
Lee Kang Bin has been going viral for not only his handsome face, but also for his beautiful latte art which is very different from the conventional art form.
Lee Kang Bin refers to his latte art as “Creamart”, and distinguishes itself from other forms of latte art with his use of color, as well as intricate designs that no other latte artist or barista has ever shown.
While he has also mastered the art of conventional latte art, Lee Kang Bin opts to go for more colorful, vibrant, and detailed works to really impress his customers.
He often draws Disney characters from films such as Bambi, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, and he has even achieved drawing Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry, Starry Night”.
One of his most recent artworks was a drawing of WINNER‘s Mino, where he taught his “Creamart” students how to draw different lights and shadows.
He has even appeared on MBC‘s My Little Television with Somi to showcase his new style of latte art and to teach her some of his techniques and tips.
