Sculpt Me A Donut

Everyday I am shocked at how talented some people are. Last night I watched Live from Lincoln Center, featuring the NYC Ballet and I was glued to the set. Humans are so damn amazing. And thanks to Daily Candy I've been exposed to two more gifted artists: Peter Anton and Gina Minichino who have food art displayed at the Allan Stone Gallery on East 90th here in NYC.
Peter sculpts all types of food including donuts, ice cream bars, chocolate, and watermelon. It looks so real and delicious! Ah, to be rich and able to afford such luxuries as a 39 inch hot fudge Sunday. Some of his work is feature in the private homes of Bill Clinton, Keith Richards, and NYC's very own Jeffery Chodorow.

Anton describing his art: "Food brings people together and there is no better way to celebrate life. Through the use of humor, scale, irony, and intensity in my forms, the foods we take for granted become aesthetically pleasing and seductive in atypical ways. I like to create art that can lure, charm, tease, disarm and surprise."

I couldn't agree more.

These exhibitions are only running until June 19th so head uptown so see them. And if you can't make it by then check out his website.

Food is Love
