I think I know what Victor Nunes, a retired art director from São Paulo, Brazil, has for breakfast.
A banana, steamy cappuccino, maybe some bread and butter. But this young-at-heart visionary doesn’t just eat his breakfast, he regularly plays with his food to create delightful doodles and mini pieces of art.
Victor is a person who sees faces in everything. A vivid imagination and a finely honed sense of play seem to be his constant companions each and every day, as he sculpts lighthearted portraits and sketches whimsical scenes. Besides bits of food, he includes everyday objects (pencil shavings, thumbtacks, matchsticks, corks, Q-tips), elevating them from the seemingly mundane to redefine their roles, always inspiring us to take a good second look at whatever is within our reach.
Enjoy this sampler platter of Victor’s work. You will never look at a piece of lettuce, a potato chip or cracker quite the same way again. Enjoy!
Victor posts something new every day on his Facebook page, Victor Nunes Faces. It’s hard to decide what’s more exciting — to see what material he’ll use or what he’ll choose to do with it. Don’t miss any of the fun!
