Twitter user @dongurinekobei has been posting some absolutely astonishing pieces of latte art. And if that is the first time you’ve heard that there is such genre, well, welcome to the club.
To tell the truth, I have always admired baristas’ ability to create forms on the top of my latte, but these have been limited to simple things like hearts, leaves and some other relatively straightforward geometrical shapes.
But now that I have seen what @dongurinekobei can do, I guess I will be taking my hearts and leaves for granted. And yes, the images below simply blew me away.
@dongurinekobei’s creations are remarkably detailed drawings of cats, some of which are almost life-like. You even see glints in some of the felines eyes, as well as remarkably thin whiskers.
The latte artist tells us that she is the proud owner of a six-year-old gray cat named Donguri and she also fosters two other kittens: Mugi and Uutan (you can see them in the video below). You will not be surprised to learn that these three felines are the artists’ inspiration for her stunning portraits.
Now here are the lattes themselves, enjoy! (Scroll down for a video featuring the three cats who are inspiring the artist’s latte creations.)
And here are the cats themselves:
