From Radish Train To Sushi Sale, This Artist Is Winning Hearts With His Miniature Food Art

The Internet is a haven for fun and quirky content. If you have something unique to offer, you’ll find your audience and they’ll be more than delighted to have you. A miniature artist from Japan has been winning hearts with his miniature food art since 2011 when he first started posting them. Tatsuya Tanaka describes his art as Mitate. Mitate-e is a Japanese art form that uses puns and incongruities as well as allusions. Take a look at his delightful profile!

This Artist Is Winning Hearts With His Miniature Food Art

This particular person has creatively reimagined everyday food items. It started as a daily project in 2011. Since then he has managed to share 4,000 to 5,000 mini art pieces. He gives everyday items a unique spin and manages to create something that is at once new yet familiar.

Take this sweet restaurant for instance. It features a plethora of baked goods and chocolates in different ways. A piece of chocolate acts as a laptop and a tray. A piece of cracker becomes a plate, and so on. The result is a charming portrait that invokes a childish delight in the viewer.

This cup noodle drum set is also a perfect example. The crinkly top cover of the ramen plays the perfect cymbal in a drum set. Another one of his delightful creations is this Sushi Sale. This particular art piece features uni makizushi (sea urchin sushi) and ikura makizushi (roe sushi) as discount bins on sale.
