Seemingly inspired by those blissful kindergarten days filled with gluing fruitloops and glitter, artist Ryan Alexiev has brought forth the phrase, “snap, crackle, and pop art.”
Using an unlikely medium, breakfast cereal, Alexiev has created mosiac portraits of icons ranging from Pamela Anderson to the likes of Osama bin Laden.
His works do have a deeper meaning than expressing his love for his morning bowl of Wheaties. The Sun says Alexiev’s newest San Francisco-based exhibition - The Land of a Million Cereals - is said to be a review of U.S. consumerism “and how central cereals are to the American constitution.”
Do you see Ryan’s use of cereal as making a statement? What’s the strangest type of food YOU’VE seen in art?
