Edible Iconic Portraits

These Iconic Portraits are Made with Edible Materials Like Gum and Milk

— July 18, 2013 — Pop Culture
These impressive celebrity portraits by artist Vivi Mac were made using edible materials such as barbecue sauce, gum, milk and honey. Mac's icon-focused portraits were mostly done on food court trays, which seems appropriate considering the materials used in this creative series.

Some of the figures seen in Mac's tasty portrait series include singer Lauryn Hill, rappers Ice Cue and Eminem, actors Bruce Lee and Will Smith and even Yoda. It's hard to imagine making a realistic portrait of a well known celebrity using only milk or caramel, but Vivi Mac does this extremely well. This art series is great because it encourages creative people to play with their food. With a little imagination and some honey there's no limit to what you can create.

Looking at these edible portraits will likely inspire viewers (while making them hungry).
Trend Themes
1. Edible Art - There is an opportunity to create more works of art made with edible materials, such as candy or baked goods, for both culinary and artistic purposes.
2. Food as Medium - Food can serve as a medium in art, fashion and entertainment, creating new possibilities for immersive and interactive experiences.
3. Sustainability and Edible Waste - There is potential for artists and chefs to utilize edible waste and scraps in artistic creations, promoting sustainability and minimizing food waste.
Industry Implications
1. Food and Beverage Industry - Restaurants and cafes can collaborate with artists to create unique culinary experiences using edible materials.
2. Art Industry - Art galleries and museums can showcase edible art exhibits that challenge viewers' perceptions of art and food.
3. Event Planning Industry - Event planners can incorporate edible art installations and experiences into weddings, corporate events and other special occasions, creating a memorable and interactive experience for guests.
