mosaic sushi culinary craze turns japanese meals into artistic arrangements

 

mosaic sushi is the latest food art trend to take the internet by storm. instagram users across the world are sharing their snapshots of this artistic culinary craze that sees pressed sushi squares organized into vibrant, tiled compositions. various ingredients from cucumbers to corn comprise colorful displays of carefully-cut pieces, forming an entirely edible artwork.

the staple japanese cuisine is made to look like ceramic titles, where perfectly cut sushi squares are organized by pattern, color and hue. bright pink pieces of tuna are positioned alongside golden egg arrangements, forming a mosaic design that satisfies symmetrical aesthetics.

this isn’t the first time food has been reimagined as creative and colorful compositions. we’ve previously featured henry hargreaves and caitlin levin’s seasonal produce as surrealist food scans; chloe wise’s fashion brand bread bags and pancake purses; and an urban art installation of sunglasses-wearing spuds by peter pink.

 

…and who can forget these felines dressed up with seaweed and rice for the series of sushi cats?
