Playing with your food isn't always a bad thing. A Japanese artist, who goes by the name Gaku on Instagram, has raised it to beautiful art, carving intensely intricate patterns into everyday fruits and vegetables.
Gaku, who began posting his edible art on Instagram about 8 months ago, practices the traditional Japanese art of mukimono, which literally means "stripped product". It became a popular form of food as a work of art presentation during the 16th century in Japan and spread to Thailand shortly after. It is now an important culinary ritual in both countries.
Due to oxidization, fruit carving has to be done fast, making Gaku's food art even more impressive. Gaku, according to Spoon & Tamago, eats all of his unique artworks when finished.
