Hirai Risa’s Edible Art

Arts Trends & Culture - February 21st, 2013

Art that you can eat.

Expect miniature models of foods and bonsai tree, but look (and smell!) closely and you’ll find out it”s actually made of food. The artist, Risa Hirai, is a university student who uses flour, butter and sugar as materials instead of paint and brushes. The usage of actual food aims to stimulate more senses of the exhibit’s visitors as they’re expected to see it, smell it, and even eat it.

Follow the smell of freshly bakes cookies and pop into the gallery to view Hirai’s very first exhibition.
