This surrealist self-portrait is strikingly close to the original painting. Shkondina utilized deep purple eggplant for the man's suit, red apple for the tie, and a green apple to represent...the green apple.
Look closely and you'll find a range of delicious goodies amidst the dark sky: blueberries, black beans, wild rice and more.
Shkondina creates a striking, geometric mosaic very reminiscent of the abstract painter's well-known style that featured straight squares and lines with watermelon, Swiss cheese, and crackers.
This leafy paradise is worthy of its own museum display. Severeal types of peppers, leaves and herbs like rosemary form a lush forest-like background for the artist's tiny female figure. She herself is made from delicately cut red bell pepper.
Cabbage, broccoli and Brussel sprouts are green-- just like the color of money. This bright, almost fluorescent, composition is a beautiful homage to the contemporary artist who never shied away from being bold.
Simple, elegant and strikingly similar. Shkondina employed the use of just two ingredients in this recreation: thin noodles of black ink pasta and a few herbs.
Shot for a men's magazine, this striking composition contains an array of dozens of fruits and vegetables. From bright orange carrots, to deep red peppers, leafy cabbage hair and rather large-ahem-melons-- this must the be true portrait of health.
We can't imagine a mouse who would turn down the chance to nestle into this cozy bed made from different cheeses. Don't miss the tiny slippers tucked just under the side.
