Using vegetables of all shapes and sizes, Chinese artist, Ju Duoqi, recreates famous masterpieces, like The Last Supper, or Mona Lisa.
Ju Duoqi first started working with vegetables in the summer of 2006, when she spent two days peeling a few kilograms of peas, before stringing them on a wire and transforming them in a skirt, a top, a headdress and a magic wand. This was her first experience with vegetable art, and it was called Pea Beauty Pageant.
The different types, shapes and colors of vegetables, with a bit of rearranging, can make for a rich source of imagery. Fresh, withered, rotting, dried, pickled, boiled or fried – and all with a dash of digital manipulation – Ju presents a puzzling series of vegetable compositions representing world famous paintings, such as The Last Supper and Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci, and Vincent Van Gogh’s Self Portrait.
