Many people would agree that sashimi (a Japanese delicacy consisting of very fresh raw fish or meat nicely sliced into thin pieces) is one of the best ways to enjoy fish. Not only you can taste thinly sliced seafood at its very freshest but also this delicacy recently became famous as a form of food art.

One culinary artist, going by the handle of mikyoui0, never had a job related to art or design, however, he has a son whom he wanted to teach food preparation and also instill a love for it. He decided to think out of the box and turn the learning process into a fun activity by making edible art. During the summer of last year, he started working with fish, therefore, it was a perfect opportunity to start the learning process! The artist taught his son how to slice and prepare sashimi and the whole learning process became a fun activity where he was able to make unique designs and form excellent works of art. The fun part is that by teaching his child, he ended up really getting into this amazing art himself.

He learned many difficult techniques from videos on YouTube and other places on the internet. He also followed a lot of famous professional chefs on Instagram and reproduced their beautiful designs which he saw on their photos and videos at home. He started spending more time on creating more difficult creatures so his skills became better and better. Suddenly, a fun activity (or should we say a learning process) became his hobby and passion!

His secret to making perfect sashimi is to use various kinds of fish and other edible ingredients to form different sashimi creatures and make them more realistic. Also, to be patient, as this unique art requires a lot of time and focus on details. We must admit, making sashimi art is not for everyone! However, the artist pays a lot of attention to details, therefore, all his artwork looks excellently done.

His artwork is very diverse - from various animated characters to mesmerizing cranes. However, most of them depict the scenes of life. He creates girls swinging in the wind, two lovers kissing on their wedding night, beautiful mermaids playing, princesses joyfully celebrating spring and much more. These scenes look like beautiful fairy tales told for children.

Currently he has 27.2K followers on his Instagram who are all fascinated by his artwork. Many of them might think that he is a world-famous chef and wouldn't even believe that he is a self-taught artist who just wanted to instill his child a love for food making.

If you're a parent, you will probably agree that making food for your children everyday requires some superpowers. It surely is one of the hardest jobs of parenting. Many parents think that this will be easy and fun task for them, therefore, at first, they're enthusiastic and optimistic about it. However, after numerous failures (mostly caused by children not wanting to eat prepared food) they realize that this task is quite overwhelming and difficult.

After some time, making food for children becomes a mission which most of the parents have to complete each day. If the mission is successful, it will be super rewarding and parents will feel at peace, but in case of a failure, they'll find themselves defeated and insecure. If you are one of those parents, we suggest that you follow this artist's example and turn the struggles of food making into a fun activity which will be entertaining not only for your child but also for you! Who knows, maybe one day you'll become a sashimi artist?
