Melbourne, Australia-based contemporary artist Ben Frost has a pop art aesthetic with a subversive, confrontational spirit. In some of his most recent work, Frost essentially uses mainly (junk) food and pharmaceutical packaging as a canvas for his bold illustrations inspired by pop culture, Roy Lichtenstein, and manga. His mashups are not random, though… Frost exhibits his mastery of juxtaposition with these works in a way that can be truly provocative. Through his work, Frost continually pushes boundaries and challenges social norms while addressing our advertising-soaked, consumer-obsessed culture. In his own statement, Frost describes: “By subverting mainstream iconography from the worlds of advertising, entertainment, and politics, he creates a visual framework that is bold, confronting and often controversial.”

For this fun series of photos, London-based fashion photographer Linus Morales recreated luxury brand logos using food (and without the use of Photoshop). Featured are Chanel sausage links, Louis Vuitton toast, Fendi fish sticks, and Gucci-branded meat. Not sure if this is some sort of commentary about our relationship with food and fashion, but at the very least makes for some engaging photography.
