We’ve all played with our food at one time or another. Perhaps drawing our favorite team’s logo with the mashed potatoes [Go Devils!], or arranging our peas to form the Batman logo. The person behind Foogos still plays with their food. But unlike most dinnertime artists, this food-player brings an art degree and agency experience to the table… and is obviously an adult. The results are works of food art that mom won’t yell at you for.
Foogos specifically creates food logos and icons of sport teams, superheroes, and other images from pop culture, usually with ingredients influenced by the subject involved. The artist not only shows an incredible talent for design, but an appreciation for food styling — seen in the meticulous treatment of ingredients, and accuracy of each icon.
And no worries, according to Foogos FAQ’s, most of the food used in these projects is repurposed and consumed for dinner, or turned into a smoothie. All while keeping their elbows off the table.*
