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.

Montreal-based artist Olivier Lefebvre recently paid homage to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, by creating a portrait using 3750 apples. And before anyone starts crying “food waste”, the mosaic consists of deer apples — meaning that they’ve already fallen from the tree, and started to decay. You learn something new every day here.

As the medium of toast mosaics is all the rage lately, it makes perfect sense that the Beatles finally get immortalized in burnt bread. Covering every number on his toaster dial, Henry Hargreaves created these mosaics using varying degrees of doneness, and the Fab Four’s Let It Be headshots. He even included Ringo.
Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson, besides slowly becoming the greatest TV character ever, likes meat. NBC wants to remind you of this fact, with the assemblage of the Ron Swanson Mosaic.
