Her tiered-desserts include Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Munch’s Scream, and Picasso’s Girl Before Mirror. It’d be a shame to cut into one of these… that is until we remember there’s cake inside. Check out more of Aristidou’s work here.
Now, this is a bake sale that we can get on board with. The Art Fund, a British fundraising charity for art, has come up with a creative way to encourage bakers and food artists to get involved for a good cause.
Edible Masterpieces urges bakers to not only create yummy treats to help raise money for UK museums and galleries, but to pay homage to some fine art in the process.
To get it started, the Art Fund recruited artists Georgia Levy, Kim Morphew, and Lydia Brun. The result — a Pollock Rice Krispies Treat, Mondrian Cake and an edible Van Gogh. Find out more about the project here.
Artist Kristen Cumings recreated a few classic paintings using thousands of jelly beans. Commissioned by Jelly Belly for their Jelly Belly Masterpieces of Confectionary Art series, Cumings spent about 50-60 hours on each 4′ x 6′ mural.
Spray adhesive was used to stick the beans to canvas, then the finished product is coated with acrylic for protection, and to discourage licking of the art. A few of the recreations include The Mona Lisa, Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, and Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Placing a protein of choice in-between two slices of bread usually isn’t very artsy. Sandwich Artist, by Low-Commitment Projects, looks to change all of that, by creating sandwiches inspired by a few great contemporary artists.
From the De Stijl sandwich works of Mondrian, to the suggestive open face of O’Keeffe, the series is a hunger-inducing tribute. But it does make us wonder — again — about what is actually art. I mean, c’mon Rothko, they made your sandwich with some mustard and two slices of cheese.
