Please Watch This Artist Draw a Bag of Potato Chips


Italian artist Marcello Barenghi is all that… And a bag of chips. Seen here, he recreates an empty chip bag so real, that you’ll want to peel it open and attempt to lick the crumbs out. We’ve heard people do that. Please watch this…

The Scream Brownies


Edvard Munch’s The Scream is one of the most iconic, parodied, and reproduced paintings in art history. Now it’s a brownie.

Brought to us by Sugary Winzy, The Scream Cheese Brownies are made with regular brownie batter that’s topped with cream cheese. The cream cheese is then ‘painted’ with a toothpick and baked. Stop screaming, the brownies will be ready in no time.

Bauhaus Food


For those not familiar with paintings from the Bauhaus, it’s simple… There were a lot of shapes. Actually, the entire art movement was about simplicity, producing paintings as well as architecture, sculpture, and furniture design that relied on the minimal.

Recently, Berlin-based photographers Nicky&Max took up the movement, creating a food photo series using Bauhaus as inspiration. Spoiler Alert: There’s a lot of food cut into simple shapes.
