Famous Paintings and Other Artwork Created with Sushi by Takayo Kiyota

Sushi Art

Tokyo-based illustrator and makizushi artist Takayo Kiyota (also known as Tama-chan) creates amazing works of art hidden within sushi rolls. “I never know what the inside looks like so I’m never sure if it will come out the way I imagined. And I can’t make edits once it’s done,” Tama-chan said, as translated by Spoon & Tamago. “Facial expressions are especially difficult because small ingredients or overly exerted force when wrapping can completely throw things off. It’s always a special moment when I make the first incision to reveal the image.” Spoon & Tamago has collected a number of her sushi artworks, and you can check out Tama-chan’s blog for even more.
