Yes, though food is typically for eating, sometimes it’s nice to do something different and break out of the box! Celebrate the end of a year (or start of a new one) and become inspired by some food art. Recently we showcased some artists who are creating some masterpieces out of the natural world and now here’s an artist creating art that perhaps has an even shorter lifespan. It’s ok though, at least it’s just as biodegradable.
Carl Warner is an architect of edible landscapes who constructs incredible miniature landscapes that surpass expectation and imagination. Though some items in the pictures are more identifiable than others, every single thing is in fact edible.
As Warner puts it, “I tend to draw a very conventional landscape using classic compositional techniques as I need to fool the viewer into thinking it is a real scene at first glance, it is the realisation that the scene is in fact made of food that brings a smile that brings a smile to the viewer, and for me that’s the best part.” He also notes that he spends far too much time staring at vegetables in supermarkets, which, to some, can look quite odd.
