Australian art duo Pip & Pop, also known as Nicole Andrijevic and Tanya Schultz, create intricately patterned floor installations made of colourful sweets mixed with glitter, beads, toys, sand, and other equally vibrant found objects. It’s an edible neon wonderland! (Just don’t try to eat the glitter, beads, toys, sand, etc.)

These bright little worlds appear to have magically grown up out of the floor and feel like a fanciful blend of fairytales, Japanese pop art, and mandalas. We wish there was a level in one of the Katamari Damacy games that looked like this. 

Visit My Modern Metropolis to view even mor photos of Pip & Pop’s awesome installations. Don’t linger too long though, you might develop cavities.

By way, these sugary installations remind us of some of the work by a Portland, OR art duo known as Apak. If you like the art of Pip & Pop you might enjoy a peek at Apak’s paintings too.

Do you think you’ve been “exposed to art” here on tumblr? I think it should count.
Does Art Make People Nicer?

Want your kids to be altruistic, tolerant, and open-minded? Expose them to the arts.
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago report that people who engage in the arts — or even those who are exposed to arts — contribute more to society than those who don’t.

ASIDE: that sun is really happy.

Earlier this year we posted about an awesome pair of meat-clad and armed warriors created by Russian artist Dimitri Tsykalov. And last year we posted some of his wonderful skulls sculpted out of fruit.  It’s become pretty clear to us that Dimitri has a knack for using food as an artistic medium.

So we were delighted to discover that Dimitri Tsykalov made these fantastic anatomical sculptures as well. We don’t know about you, but having just seen a big fresh spring roll that looks exactly like a foot, ordering regular old roll-shaped fresh spring rolls just seems like a letdown. We’re also going to have to give some serious consideration to making a cocktail weenie head for our next party.
