Van Gogh Paintings as Food Art

Food Art Kelly McCollam After: Van Gogh's “Starry, Starry Night”

Kelly McCollam (After: Van Gogh’s “Starry, Starry Night”)

Cincinnati-based artist and photographer, Kelly McCollam, uses salt, spices and food-coloring to create unique, Pointillism-inspired food art images. In addition to an extensive series of landscapes called Salt of the Earth, McCollam has recreated a handful of food art Van Goghs.

Vincent Van Gogh is my favorite painter… So, I thought I’d pay him homage by doing a few master studies in spices!

What fantastic food art! You can purchase affordable prints of McCollam’s work here.

Here’s another kind of art made from herbs. While we’re near the spice rack: portraits made with poppy seeds.
