Food for Thought Art
Social media sites, Instagram in particular, are a limitless source of captivating food shots that seem too perfect to eat. From picture perfect rainbow bagels to the most foodie pup, we’re often on hand to bring you some of most imaginative food art creations from across the internet.
And in our quest to bring you the latest and best food art trends are currently available, we stumbled upon the incredible works of food fanatic Diego Cusano, who we must admit has other ideas for everyday food. As well being a talented graphic designer, musician and an artist, this Italian has added a never-seen-before strategic element to everyday food by capturing them in a way that we’ve never imagined before.
Diego, who hails from Perugia, Italy, adds fun in his drawings by strategically incorporating different types of foods in his pictures. He ensures that the foods blend seamlessly into his creations where a burger becomes a bulldog’s snout, a pear becomes hot air balloon and bananas become a parachute among many more.
“I started viewing things from a different point of view and it enabled me to create illustrations that change objects from their native functions to unpredictable functions,” Diego explains.
His main aim is to put smiles on people’s faces through his creations, and he’s certainly made us happy. We hope that you like them and you can find more on his Instagram account.
