This series of colorful food art by Mexican artist Paul Fuentes combines everyday objects with edible items and mixes unexpected sweet and savory combinations.

Included is a medal made of bacon with a sunny side up egg as its medallion, a stiletto that looks like melted ice cream on a waffle cone and a bubbly soap bar on a popsicle stick. His minimalist style and vibrant use of color make his work stand out, with each of the images appearing in front of a light pastel background.

The pieces look slightly cartoon-like but their use of realistic detail make them cause the viewer to envision themselves picking each object up. With this, the glistening yolk of the egg medal looks like its about to burst open and the waffle cone heel on the bright pink stiletto appears ready to crumble.
