Australian artist Ben Frost, using the bold red and yellow packaging of McDonald’s french fries as canvas, recreates pop culture icons. Frost takes inspiration from graffiti and sign writing, using sharp lines and bold colors to help his subject stand out — even when competing with the garish colors of the fries box.
What better way to make harmless little lies more convincing, than with a beautiful typography series? Brought to us by NYC-based artist Lauren Hom, Daily Dishonesty makes a strong case for things such as her empty promise of, “I’ll Just Have A Salad,” or her false claim that, “Bacon is a Food Group.”
Considering the brilliant design, colors, and use of typography — viewers may be open to stretching the truth a bit. Now, how do we get bacon on that new food pyramid?
Prints of Daily Dishonesty are available for sale at Society6.
To help combat the colorless and slightly depressing days of winter, artist Florent Tanet created A Colorful Winter. By precisely cutting and arranging the produce into deliberate patterns, the individual items come together as a cohesive whole, while injecting some much needed color into our cold gray days.
A Colorful Winter is currently on display at Le Bon Marché department store in Paris.
New York-based artist Christine Chin brings us Sentient Kitchen. The series, “which examines the convergence between technology and biology,” borrows from both human anatomy and everyday kitchen tools — creating a few thought-provoking and mildly disturbing sculptures. Got milk?
Created as a commentary on processed foods, photographers Barbara Ciurej & Lindsay Lochman brings us the Fruit Loops Landscape. Part of a series titled, Processed Views, the edible landscapes were inspired by photographer Carleton Watkins and 21st century industrial exploitation — specifically the current intersection of nurture, nature and technology.
