Artist Creates Amazing Celebrity Portraits Out Of Food Scraps


Jessie Bearden is a talented artist who creates celebrity portraits with an unusual medium — food.

“I like for the food or ingredient to have something to do with the person,” she explains in a video interview. “Whether that’s sending a message or just something that they really like.”

Her pieces take up to one hour to complete.

“You see their pictures a billion times a day. It’s kind of fun to see them in a different way,” she explained.

The pieces don’t last very long. They are either blown away or put in the trash. Bearden says takes photos of her pieces to remember them. 

Bearden, who is based out of New York city, has nearly 30,000 followers on Instagram
