Bacon Kevin Bacon

Mosaic artist Jason Mecier, who’s no stranger to using cured meats as a medium, has created his masterpiece with Kevin Bacon made from bacon.

Besides the obvious question of, “What took so long to think of this?” the next logical inquiry is “How awesome must Mecier’s apartment smell?”

Beef Jerky Barack Obama and Mitt Romney

Mosaic artist Jason Mecier, best known for his food mosaics of pop culture and mythical figures, has recently thrown his glue gun into the political ring. Created for a promotion for Jack Links, Barack Obameat & Meat Romney [nice!] are made entirely from beef jerky.

Now, we try never to get political here at Foodiggity. But even Romney’s dehydrated meat smile gives me the douche chills. Be sure to check out Mecier’s making-of video below.

The World’s Largest Coffee Bean Mural

Entitled Awakening, Russian artist and sculptor Arkady Kim recently revealed the world’s largest coffee bean mosaic. At around 30 square meters and using around 397 lbs of coffee beans, the highly caffeinated mural is on display at Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure in Moscow.

Passersby are encouraged to get up close to touch and smell the fresh roasted beans. But please, no licking the art. It’s on display until July 1.

Mosaic Made From One Million Coffee Beans

Artist Saimir Strati takes his coffee seriously. So much so, that instead of grounding beans for his morning brew, he’s decided to use about one million of them to create a 25 square meter mosaic. Titled One World, One Family, One Coffee, the massive mosaic is being constructed in Strati’s native Albania. When completed, the coffee art will feature five characters representing different continents… and staying awake for long periods of time.
