Kristian Mensa is a 17-year-old artist who created beautiful food-enhanced artwork with her recent series of drawings. Her Instagram account is packed with images she drew accompanied by a physical object layered on top.

Covering a range of topics like nature and pop-culture, each piece of artwork begins with a hand drawn image. By placing an object on top of the drawing, a 3D effect is created. She uses anything from pasta, grapes and chocolate chips to screws, plastic forks and leaves.

Sometimes the objects she uses are the main focus. For example, Mensa drew a simple tree and used a wine bottle opener as the main focus because it resembled a bird. In other images, the physical objects are a secondary element. An example of this is when Mensa drew an image of Harry Potter and added a piece of wheat as his broomstick.
