Broccoli never looked that good…

broccoliJapanese artist Gaku creates incredible pieces of edible art.


The art of carving garnishes is elevated to stratospheric levels in Japan. Mukimono is practiced with vegetables and fruits, but could also be soap carvings. Gaku’s art is inspired by traditional Japanese motifs and are a fast trade. As soon as the peal comes off the vegetable or fruit, oxidization starts.


The origins of the fruit carvings are disputed, they could be rooted in Japan, Thailand or China going back at least 700 years. In Thailand it is said that it started with Loi Kratong in the 14th century. During the festival many floats are decorated with flowers and vegetables.
