Breach manipulates latte foam to create stunning portraits, from movie references to TV show characters to celebrities, and landscapes, and posts photos of his creations on his Instagram account, @baristart. Shown here is his "'Chewy, we’re Foam!' Han Solo Espresso and Brewbacca," a nod to the upcoming movie, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

  • Breach uses nothing but one cafe latte and a toothpick to create his art. This photo he called "The Velatte-raptor" as a nod to the upcoming movie, "Jurassic World." "I think it's art a lot of ways, because it doesn't really have a use," he told "Nightline." "The only real purpose of art is to make somebody happy, to be pleasing to the eye for aesthetics."

  • Breach said he started doing latte foam art when he had down time as a barista. "I had a lot of time on my hands and I had a lot of coffee around me and I just wanted to make art with whatever was around me, and to entertain myself," he told "Nightline." His caffeinated creations have earned him more than 53,000 followers on Instagram.

  • Shown here is Breach's portrait of "Game of Thrones" character Tyrion Lannister. Breach said he started doing portraits kind of on a dare. "Just sort of did it because I thought it was funny and I got really good at doing latte art, and somebody was like, 'I bet you can’t draw a face.' And so I just tried doing it," he said.
