Veggie Art

Veggie Alien

This is by far one of the coolest food-themed paintings I’ve seen. It’s definitely a step up from this kind of vegetable art, even if it’s not actually REAL vegetables.

It looks a bit like the alien from Aliens, but apparently it’s a tribute to H.R. Giger and Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

Entitled Salad, this painting by Till Nowak was in the art exhibit side of Emerging Technologies. It’s modeled and rendered in Autodesk 3DS MAX and then retouched in photoshop for that “painting” look.

    Well, I wouldn’t say that “it looks a bit like the alien from Alien”… it totally is the alien from Alien! 🙂

    In fact, it was H.R. Giger who created the alien.

    Nice and original picture.

    hi, I have just come across the picture of the veggie alien, it looks totally amazing- it’s a true piece of art, and I liked it so much it’s now my wallpaper on my laptop.
    It’s amazing the way it’s been created, even if it isn’t real veggies- amazing to look at.
