Michael Breach of Brooklyn, New York, is becoming known as one of the top artists in his field — coffee.
Breach is a barista-turned-artist with more than 32,000 followers on Instagram and close to 300 latte creations on his Tumblr. Using only a toothpick to draw faces in the foam, he creates cups of art. His most recent work commemorating this year’s Oscar winners and nominees created quite a stir — from his coffee characterizations of “Dallas Buyers Club” to “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
He recently told The Huffington Post that each portrait takes about a five minutes to create and about five minutes to melt away.
“I passed the time challenging myself with increasingly complex designs,” he said. “People really reacted to it so I kept going and here I am today.”
