Latte Art

Not all art stands the test of time; some art isn’t meant to. Ice sculptures, sand castles, and chocolate rabbits come to mind. Why invest creativity and talent into an art form that is ephemeral?

Butterflies only live for a month. Does that make them any less beautiful?

More fleeting than a sidewalk chalk design, Latte Art only exists until that first sip.

Despite its frighteningly short lifespan, Latte Art attracts some true artists. Brian Leonard, a Toronto barista originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick has carved a career out of food colouring and steamed milk.

Latte Art is a tricky business, imagine speed painting on a surface that melts. For Brian, “It’s all about creating that one moment of almost near perfection.”

Unfortunately, you won’t find Brian at Starbucks, but he can be tracked down at baristabrian.com.

To the small pleasures in life—L’Chaim!
