It’s often said you first eat with your eyes, but one Australian artist is reimagining how we look at food.
Mundane Matters is the project of Danling Xiao, a Sydney-based artist who transforms fruits and vegetables into rather adorable and clever little objects of art.
On her Instagram page, you’ll spot a humble cucumber turned into a chair and picture frame, a pear reimagined as an intricate dress, or an eggplant given new life as a stern looking balloon.
Xiao moved to Sydney, Australia from Guangdong, China when she was 18, originally studying accounting at university. She quit after a year to study design, which has been her profession ever since.
