The spilling of milk is a common occurrence in our home. Spilled milk on the dinner table, spilled milk on the floor, and spilled milk all over my daughter’s clothes. That milk doesn’t stay long — we quickly wipe up the mess. But now after seeing the work of the French artist Vivi Mac, I’m rethinking that.
Vivi Mac creates witty pop culture masterpieces using a variety of food products, from gum to spilled wine and milk, to form portraits of luminaries such as Ghandi, George Clooney, and Yoda. And she does it quickly, calling her work “speed painting” (check out a video of her at work below).
