Italian Artist Makes Creative Carvings With Avocados

We’re pretty impressed when we see someone creating unusual food art, and Daniele Barresi is one great example. Barresi turns regular produce into sculptures that look too beautiful to eat, and luckily they are all captured on camera. And we’re particularly fascinated by his avocado carving skills.

The Italian artist uses food for creative expression. He carves many foods including fruits, vegetables, and cheeses.
“When I touch my knife, my mind gives up to the heart and transmits directly to the hands, giving different forms to the decorations. It’s like magic,” Barresi writes on Bored Panda.

He spent most of his life in an Italian small town where he was free to explore the nature surrounding it. This fueled his imagination and inspired him to create art from natural materials, such as food. Over time, he practiced his skills and transformed into a professional carver. His dream is to one day have his own TV show, demonstrating the art of carving to a large audience.
