Regardless of your political affiliation, or how you feel about billionaire real estate moguls, you cannot deny that Donald Trump is often a strange shade of orange.

Artist Lauren Garfinkel agrees, and has taken advantage of Trump’s unfortunate hue, by sculpting him from a circus peanut. The Donald Trump Circus Peanut is only part of Lauren’s Edible Government project — but it’s surely the one that’ll make the most headlines. Just like that silly orange guy.

We’ve certainly seen our share of coffee art lately. However, Indonesian artist Ghidaq al-Nizar is using his morning brew in all of its forms.

Whether it’s in liquid form, or using just-brewed beans, Ghidaq creates beautiful paintings and sculptures, not wasting any part of the brewing process. The project is appropriately tagged #zerowastecoffee, and you can see more of the project at Coffeetopia on Instagram.

Just in time for summer, and while Game of Thrones is still fresh in our noggins, here comes one of the greatest watermelon sculptures ever.

Brought to us by artist, Valeriano Fatica, the Watermelon Dragon emerges from its fruit-shell so convincingly, that it will surely be able to scare off the bravest of hobbit, or to just have a picnic with the Khaleesi. See more below.

Resin and cork. Classic. Armless. New at The Foodiggity Shop.

Spilled Coffee Art Is A Wonderful Accident

When you spill your coffee… Does it just look like, you know, a spill?

It’s OK, we can’t all be artists like Giulia Bernardelli, who sees spilled coffee as an opportunity. The best part is, her coffee paintings are done spontaneously, meaning that Giulia does not plan these ahead of time, and uses whatever means are available to draw with.

See more below and over at Instagram.
