Give Tisha Cherry a food item--any food item--and I'll bet that she can turn it into a work of art. But you'd better be well-informed about pop culture. Her work references rap music, The Simpsons, Star Wars, Banksy, and a lot more.
Frank151 interviewed her about her work. Cherry explains that her work began in an effort to, "enhance the experience of eating and not just consume for sustenance." Although her technical skills as an artist are impressive, Cherry thinks that the first step to creating food art is to find the right edible medium for a subject:
It’s not so much a technical skill as it is being resourceful and putting “the pieces” together. It’s about finding the right ingredient to mimic color and the right utensil to manipulate that ingredient. I use whatever I have in the kitchen: chopsticks, toothpicks, kitchen shears, fruit carving knife, etc. And if I make a mistake, I just eat it!
