Risa Hirai, a senior at Tama Art University, creates beautiful baked goods of objects synonymous with her native Japan. From everyone’s favorite mini tree — the bonsai — to a full sukiyaki dinner, Hirai meticulously crafts cookies that are as much art as they are food. The intent is to lure art seekers to her gallery exhibit with their eyes and noses — relying on the unmistakable smell of freshly baked goods.
Hirai’s work will be on display at Gallery Tokyo Humanite, March 11-16.
