Latte and more, for the creative mind ;)

Let's play a game.
When I say art, what are the first 3 words that come to your mind?
Waiting .....
Is trees on your list? Latte? Perhaps bears?
If not, you may want to read this!

Coffee art by Kazuki Yamamoto
Let's start in the morning. What do most of us do?
Have a cup of coffee, right?
How about one that looks like this?
Quite a way to start the day!

Kazuki Yamamoto, a 26 old barista from Osaka, makes 3D latte sculptures.

Do you think this is less of an artwork than the ones hanging in a gallery?
I don't.

In some ways I even like it better as it is way more creative to sculpt with milk foam than with more traditional materials.

See more pictures below, as well as a nice article if you want to read more.  

Giraffe latte sculpture!

This one is my favorite :)

Fishing cat latte art

Enough coffee for today?
Let's take a walk, and since we can choose any place we like, why not the Chinese district of Shijiazhuang? 
You have a dog? Take it with you, as he may also like this :)

Painting on trees by Wang Yu
23-year-old art student Wang Yu is transforming the streets into an open air gallery with her beautiful tree paintings.
The paintings are mostly of animal and plants, maintaining a naturalistic look.

And, not to worry, the paintings have been approved by the environmental protection bureau who confirms the paints do not harm the trees.

A beautiful combination of art, nature and out of the box thinking.
I love it!

Fancy a good cold German beer now, after all this walking? 
Let's go to Frankfurt, Germany and look for a nice place in the downtown. 
No beer, but look at these bears!

These pictures were taken by me in a recent trip to Frankfurt. 

Artistic bears (and some rabbits) wonderfully crafted to
the last detail. 

Amazing work.

Took a lot of will power to buy only a small puppet!

See the pictures below and you will probably agree with me.

Can't remember if this one was Bach or Mozart...I should have taken notes ...

Another beautifully detailed bear. Just look at the lace collar!

Creativity comes in so many shapes and forms, and inspiration is literally all around us.

Waiting for us to take the time and pay attention.

If you love inspiring and unconventional pieces of art,

Go be creative, and have a wonderful day!

Until next time,
