Artist Maurizio Cattelan and fashion photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari are known for
their absurd, colorful photographs that mock popular culture while at the same time celebrating it. The co-founders behind Italian surrealist biannual magazine Toiletpaper have a thing for peculiar scenarios of food art that range from funny to grotesque, depending on your appetite.
Their playful food art photos come with an unmistakably surreal twist.
Ferrari and Cattelan’s oddball sense of humor is evident in the fantastic imagery of gourmet dishes you certainly won’t find on the fanciest restaurant menu. Some of their wacky scenes include: a living frog burger, a gutted trout stuffed with jewels or a plate of ice cream stuffed with cigarettes. While not exactly edible, they certainly make for subversively fantastic pop art.
