London-based artist Carl Warner doesn’t just push food around his plate to make smiley faces or animal silhouettes. He’s taken playing with food to an entirely different level by creating fantastically detailed landscapes out of edible parts. He calls these edible sculptures “foodscapes” and so far they have been immensely popular with both foodies and artists. Each of the foodscapes is built out of a variety of ingredients such as meats, fish, vegetables, nuts, leaves and processed foods such as biscuits and sweets.
Warner is a masterful visual chef, creating gourmet artworks with high quality lighting, detail and form. So much so, in fact, that some of his food landscapes can be mistaken at a glance for a photograph of a real place. While many of Warner’s foodscapes resemble landscapes found here on Earth, some of his most appealing and captivating pieces depict scenes from a magical, alien world in which anything is possible (as long it’s made out of food!)
