These images from New York artist Sadi Tekin are probably the quirkiest examples of food art I've ever seen. In the series 'Mr. Chickpea and Friends,' a man's face is illustrated on a chickpea.

Yes, you read that right. In the images we see the chickpea placed around different areas in New York City in humorous positions and situations. From a green Kermit the Frog chickpea to one who looks quite scared of the prospect of being eaten by a human, this series is slightly strange, yes, but it will also give you a chuckle.

Sadi Tenkin is a New York based illustrator and product designer. This is a cute take on the popularization of food art. Stats for Illustrated Legume Art Trending: Older & Average
