Play with your food much? Probably not as much, or as well, as artist Kaisa Haupt does. Sandwich Monsters is a fun collection of cute and edible creatures made from sandwiches and other sandwich material. Check out more of the project here.
We love you, food. But we’re so busy consuming you, that we never take the time to see what’s on the inside. Cut Food, a photo series by New York-based photographer Beth Galton, explores the innards of our meals by deliberately cutting them down the middle.
From split ramen to a bisected corn dog, the series remains visually stunning while perhaps providing a little too much information. See more here.
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.
Inspired by her local farmers markets, and with the help of the mobile app Instagram, Los Angeles-based Julie Lee creates stunning food collages. By deliberately and sparingly arranging the food items she collects, the static images are arranged in a way to keep the viewer’s eyes moving.
Instagram, which Lee uses brilliantly, gives the photos a soft and inviting tone — making them worthy of becoming your desktop [or guest room] wallpaper. See more of Julie’s work here, along with tips and stories from her culinary adventures.
