Eye Candy: Celebrity Portraits Made of Sugary Sweets

Willy Wonka would be so proud of Mexican artist Cristiam Ramos; his art work is completed entirely out of candy! At his studio in Orlando, Florida, the 32 year old artist uses gummy bears, licorice, candy hearts, , M&M’s, bubble gum, after dinner mints, and a lot of patience to meticulously glue candy to a canvas, creating intricate celebrity portraits, without any paint. Aside from re-designing iconic faces out of candy, the artist has also built a life size motorcycle out of 20,000 sweets! Ramos’ sweet portraits can sell for up to $18,000 and some have even been placed in Ripley’s Hollywood Museum. Find out more about Ramos’ candy artwork here.
