Fast Food and Junk Food Photographed As Renaissance Paintings

Kopie

It takes quite a bit to make fast food aesthetically-pleasing. Luckily, there was a little something called the Renaissance, which could help make anything from creepy man-babies to sub-par cheeseburgers look good.

Photographer Rebecca Rütten has taken advantage of the art movement, and has prettied-up some fast food with Contemporary Pieces. The photography series, inspired by the look of Renaissance paintings, poses a few still-lifes and cloaked subjects holding fast food.

Thankfully, there’s no man-babies eating McNuggets.

If you’re having candy for dinner — again — then you should at least try to make it look like a sensible meal. Artist Jessica Gaber does just that with Candy Cuisine — creating what appears to be savory meals that are made mostly out of candy.

If you’re craving some Rice Krispies Treats, Airheads, and fruit jellies — then Sugarshimi should be on your menu. Want to make tacos even sweeter? Gaber pulls it off with Mexicandy.

See more sugary meals below and at Gaber’s website and Instagram.

This Banana Art Is Appealing

banana-grossi

Since the discovery that a banana makes for a wonderful canvas, we’ve seen our share of banana art. But rather than simply taking advantage of the fruit’s easily bruisable skin, artist Marta Grossi takes the art form a bit further.

Although most of the Italian artist’s works are in the medium of banana-browning, she also incorporates pen, marker and paint — creating the beautiful, yet temporary art. She also eats each banana after snapping photos, so she’s talented and high on potassium.
