Online shopping is quite popular these days. Unless you already used something, otherwise it is quite difficult to know something is good or not. Hence, reading reviews of products is one of the way to save you a lot of trouble.

When I first saw Kangbin’s cremart, I thought that were some painting at the bottom of the coffee cup and don’t think that was a big deal at all. However, after I watch closely and found out those paintings were drawn with a thin metal rod and a palette of food dyes on latte, I was totally shocked and didn’t want to believe my eyes. How would that be possible? Are those just some photoshopped photos? After watching Kangbin’s video of how to make some of the cremart, I started to believe there is someone can actually create latte art like these. From Bambi to Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night”to Disney’s cartoon characters, it looks like there’s virtually nothing he can’t draw on milk foam. Now the question is if you have such a cup of latte in front of you, will you really want to drink it?
Although there are clearly some fruits and vegetables in below photos, I still didn’t connect that with food at first sight because it just looks too colorful. Rachel Lorton, a self-proclaimed “smoothie bowl enthusiast” creates below eye-pleasing dishes with all-natural ingredients such as turmeric, hemp heart, pea flower, beetroot and cantaloupe.
Neon pink, ocean blue, and deep magenta together resemble tie dye prints you’d find on clothing. But don’t be afraid about those vibrant colors, they are just vegan food which should be good for you. Through her Instagram, Lorton demonstrates that you don’t need artificial colors or flavors to make stunning works of food art. There are some video tutorials on her Instagram page and you can take a look if you are not only statisfied by looking at these visual treats and want to try by yourself.
Inspired by the interplay and relationship between “good” and “evil”, embodied by animals, the 5 artworks in “Symbols of Life” Series by artist Jonas Jödicke are forming popular symbols with commonly known meanings: heart, Yin & Yang, circle, eternity and the peace symbol.
This series went so successful that Jonas Jödicke, the self-taught artist who started digital painting when he was 14 years old was be able to make a living by selling prints, clothing, coloring books and original artworks. Altough, not everyone can live on their hobby, Jonas still want to tell those who wants to pursue theirs dreams “Stay true to who you are. Be brave. You will never know, if the life you dream of living could come true, if you do not take a risk and at least TRY pursuing it.” Below is the 5 artwork from the “Symbols of Life” Series and if you like them, you can order the print from Jonas’s Etsy Store.

Personally, I am not a big fan of “Food Art” because I believe food is mean for eat, not sculpting, not drawing or neither playing. But apparently, there are many artists keen on playing with food and create some artwork out of it. Like Anna Keville Joyce, she uses various of food, cooked or raw to create scenes such as animal, city landmarks and cartoon. Although it is called “editable art”, I don’t really think most of those pieces can be eaten, at least I don’t want to eat uncooked rice. And I can see there are many food wasted to create any those type of “food drawing”. Take a look at below works from Anna and let me know do you like such kind of artwork?
Talking about the chicken or rooster, you probably won’t connect them with the word beautiful. Based on their living condition, you might not even think they are clean and neat. However, the unusual photos from photographe Matteo might change your impression. This crazy chicken photography show started when Matteo decided to have a Concincina as a pet for my studio garden in Milan. Then in an aviary exhibition, he found the hen he want and also started journey of taking photo for chicken. Work with his friend and work partner Moreno, they started to take pictures of literally hundreds of chickens and roosters. Eventually, we ended up with enough material that they can publish a book about that. Hence, they launched a Kickstarter campaign to sell their book about the sexiest and most beautiful chickens on the planet.
