Food art brings our appreciation of all things culinary to the next level — and a series of celebrity portraits made from food are the latest example of an artist using a seriously unique medium to create a masterpiece. Harley Langberg, founder of Harley’s Food Art, promises to “turn the edible into the unforgettable” and he uses a wide variety of ingredients that come from all over the globe to craft seriously impressive food art.
Langberg’s inspiration comes from famous artwork, pop culture, holiday celebrations, and eye-catching sights that strike his fancy as he walks down the street. His portraits of celebrities are especially popular — and a quick look at them explains why.

We can’t think of a better way to say “Happy Birthday!” to John Legend than with a portrait made from ground coffee.

Langberg gathered ingredients from Dylan’s Candy Bar (aka the happiest place in the world) and beautifully replicated Audrey Hepburn’s iconic Breakfast at Tiffany‘s character, Holly Golightly.
Here's piece 3/3 for @wilsontennis. Wishing @serenawilliams all the best in her upcoming match tonight! I had so much fun creating these food art portraits of some of Wilson's sponsored players.

Langberg wished “good luck!” to Serena Williams before her Wimbledon match by creating a portrait of the tennis star with cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, raisins, prunes, apple, lemon, nectarine, yogurt, and starfruit.

It’s no secret that Simone Biles was the true star of the Olympics, and Langley honored the most talented gymnast of all time with this stunning portrait.
