If as a child, Kirsten Cumings was ever told to stop playing with her food, she certainly did not listen, as demonstrated by her series of fantastic jelly bean art. The collection is comprised of various images that have been recreated using the vast pallet of colors from different jelly beans. The series tackles famous paintings, such as the Mona Lisa and Starry Night, as well as some more pop culture figures like Harry Potter and the 'We Can Do It' promotional campaign from the 1940s.

The artist's ability to accurately capture the look of her source material through the use of candy is nothing short of astounding. Upon close inspection, it's clear that the images are not the source material themselves, but they are nonetheless immediately recognizable, indicative of the attention to detail and skilled application.
