Not playing with food is something that has been engrained into our brains since we were children, but Hong Yi didn’t listen to that old adage and has created some beautiful food designs.
Yi has been using food as his medium for creativity for some time now, and he is able to make stunning pieces of art that are made out of common items. As an example, jelly beans replace standard balloons in the depiction where the house is flying. It is a simple replacement, but it creates interest in both the art work as well as the food. The pieces with vegetables in them are an interesting way different textures and colors can come together and create a beautiful piece. Hong Yi’s food designs truly depict that one does not need to use traditional materials in order to be an artist.
