Marvel at Intricate Fruit & Vegetable Carvings

Fruit Art

Japan has a rich tradition of food carving called mukimono. If you’ve ever eaten at a fancy restaurant in Japan you might have found a carrot carved into a bunny, garnishing your plate.

But in the hands of Japanese artist Gaku, the art of fruit and vegetable carving is elevated to a new realm of edible creations. One constraint to carving fruits and vegetables is that sometimes you must work fast.

The moment a peel is removed, oxidization will start to discolor your artwork. So, depending on the variety, Gaku’s carvings are probably created within several minutes.

You can find many more examples of Gaku's incredible works over at Spoon & Tamago as well as his Instagram account. Click the link below and prepared to be blown away by his succulent sculptures!
