Renaissance artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo was perhaps the first artist to use food to create a mosaic image, though his work was in paint, not made of food itself. This image, ‘Summer’, is part of a seasonal series and features a human profile made up of fruits and vegetables.
A contemporary artist that works almost entirely in chocolate, Prudence Emma Staite wants people to experience her art with all of their senses. She creates jewelry, paintings, sculpture, games and even entire rooms from chocolate –but the sweet stuff isn’t her only favorite medium. She also made sculptures of the Colosseum, Spanish Steps and Pope Benedict XVI using enough pizza dough to make 500 pizzas for an exhibit at the Museum of London.
