More and more coffeehouses are putting fancy leaf or flower designs atop your morning latte, but none can match South Korean barista Lee Kang-bin.

The 26-year-old replicates famous paintings such as Vincent van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” and Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” in thick, food-colored cream.

Reuters reports that the result of the painstaking 15-minute "painting" process is a nearly $9 cup of cold coffee that has attracted thousands of followers on Lee's social media accounts.
