Artist Turns Food Into ‘Fan Art’
An anonymous Rhode Island artist takes edible staples of tailgating and NFL Sunday feasting and turns them into the ultimate form of sports fanhood. Translation: he makes sports logos out of food.
Foogos Studio takes food such as guacamole, ketchup and salsa and molds them into exact replicas of pro sports logos, comic book art and even portraits of famous people.
The artist said he got the idea for his medium when he was asked by his boss to put together a banner for an International Food Day event. He got bored with the design and decided to write out the letters in condiments. Soon after, the whole banner was being painted with every conceivable food topping he could find.
See, your mom was wrong about playing with food. Just kidding. Your mom is never wrong. She paid us to say that.
