Diego Cusano is a creative Italian graphic illustrator that put together a series of hybrid pop culture drawings that combine food products with pencil sketches. The illustrations are whimsical and fanciful seamlessly incorporating the food as central elements of the realistic illustrations.

Cusano creates these surrealist images as a way to interact with his other passion for songwriting. The illustrations feature realistic black and white pencil sketches of iconic figures such as Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa with pasta noodles as hair or The Little Prince walking on a planet made out of a latte in a ceramic coffee cup. The combination of food and art encourages the viewer to ponder the boundaries of surrealism.

Each of the artwork pieces are featured on Cusano's Instagram account, called diego_cusano.
