Oscar Nominees As You've Never Seen Them Before: In Mike Breach's Coffee Foam Art!

Even if you've seen all the Oscar-nominated films, you haven't seen them like this.

Mike Breach, 28, a New York barista, specializes in "baristart," a self-coined term for art made in the foam of lattes.

Using only a toothpick, Breach is able to mark detailed faces in the foam, only to have his coffee creations fade away quickly.

Breach started his work to avoid boredom. "I had massive amounts of time at a lonely hotel barista station with not too many orders," Breach told The Huffington Post in an email interview.

"I passed the time challenging myself with increasingly complex designs... People really reacted to it so I kept going and here I am today."

Each portrait takes about five minutes to make and lasts about as long.
