Art can be made out of all kinds of materials, from clay to wood to metal. However, sometimes people come up with a different type of canvas for their artistic expression.

Like this Italian artist who uses food to create intricate, detailed, and beautiful carvings from food. Daniele Barresi creates these artworks from all kinds of foods, but today we will be focusing on everyone's favorite superfood—avocado. Daniele manages to turn these delicious treats into intricate sculptures that you would probably feel bad eating.

How does he keep them from turning brown while he carves these masterpieces?
