Incredible Food Carvings That Are Too Beautiful To Eat By Japanese Artist “Gaku”

Published 1 year ago

Have you ever created a food masterpiece? Yes, we know you made that chili that your mom said was great that one time. But we’re talking about taking regular food  and turning into a work of art (no, the sausage octopus doesn’t count). We’ve recently featured a dessert artist who makes desserts that look like household items, now check out Gaku – a Japanese artist, turning regular fruit and vegetables into incredibly detailed works of art.

Gaku’s works are part of a 16th century tradition, called mukimono – an important part of Japanese and Thai food cultures. Not everyone can be a mukimono artist – the fruit start changing color quickly after being cut, meaning speed is of the uttermost importance. So if you take more than a minute to peel a carrot, then sadly mukimono might not be for you (or you could try this crazy invention, but that would be cheating).

Check out Gaku’s amazing food carvings in the gallery below, and maybe they’ll inspire you to create food art of your own! (And no, the sausage octopus still doesn’t count)

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
