81 Examples of Food-Based Art

From Eggplant Penguins to Jell-O Architecture

— November 11, 2012 — Art & Design
Nutrition's primary purpose has been recreated to take on a more creative function with this food-based art. Whether depicting the gluttonous and food-obsessed culture or creating masterpieces of the most famous landmarks created entirely out of Jell-O,  each artist expresses themselves through their food focused pieces.

Replacing the usual materials of paint and pencil typical in art, there really is no limit as to how far this experimental food medium can go. These pieces demonstrate that food can be used in an intriguing and infinite way so as to recreate and reflect on the world we live in.

The increasing popularity in food art reflects the ongoing and obligatory relationship with it. Food is our primary source of survival and without it, we would quickly whither away. Besides, who isn’t intrigued with a piece of food-based art that can easily be turned into a snack?
