These Artistic Masterpieces Use Food to Create Portrait Art

 - Jul 20, 2013
Many artists lately have been looking to food as an alternative art medium to make deliciously creative, and edible, portrait art masterpieces.

In a culture where many everyday products and household commodities are disposable, it makes sense to create art that also has an expiry date. Viewers are then pushed to enjoy food portrait art in the moment, since it is only temporary. Food also offers just as much -- if not more -- color options as conventional paint does, but also offers the artist more room to play around with different textures. With this added dimension, artists have the opportunity to add a second layer of meaning to their work.

From celebrity produce portraits to edible cartoon art, have a look through these food portraits and see for yourself the art that can be created through using food.
