It turns out you can do more with an avocado than make avocado toast. Food sculptor and artist Daniele Barresi has been wowing the internet with his fruit and vegetable creations, proving that they aren’t just healthy to eat, they’re gorgeous. Take a look at his creations and you may never think of broccoli the same way again.

As well as taking part in contests, Barresi currently works as a pastry chef at a bakery in Sydney, Australia, where he creates sugar art and fruit carvings to decorate their wares. He also carves soap and teaches courses, but if you can’t get to Italy to take one, you can check out his videos on his site or on his Facebook page.

One of my favourite artwork ❤️🍉🍉🍉🍉 #artdiscovered
