Sarah Rosado is a New York-based illustrator and photographer who is entirely self-taught, which enables her creativity to expand without borders -- something that's shown especially with her more recent oak flake portraits.

Previously, the artist was celebrated for her celebrity pieces, which were crafted with yellow corn flakes, showing that playing with food can be productive if it's done correctly. What's different about Sarah Rosado's oat flake series, other than the material used that is, are her subjects.

Framing each with rolls of cinnamon and against a backdrop of a fruity breakfast, Sarah Rosado's oat flake portraits recreate some of the world's most iconic works of art. This includes Leonardo da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa' and Edvard Munch's 'The Scream.'
