Weird Art of the Week!…

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?

About this blog

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
