5 artists who use candy in their art
To satiate our sweet tooth, what else?
Gorgeous Listicles 08 Jul 2019

We can’t forget that time Felix Gonzales Torres put a pile of individually-wrapped candies on a gallery floor, piling up into a mountain.

We also love Daryl Gortner, who paints hyper-realistic paintings of lollipops and candy, fixed with their unopened plastic packaging.

Peter Anton is an artist who has recreated a birds eye view of open chocolate boxes, showing how detailed the design is that goes into framing a box of chocolates.

And who can forget that time when Erik Raitinen built a sculpture entirely out of pink cotton candy? Purely epic and who could resist?

Lynn Bontjes van Beek has also made a piece showing powdered berry candies, that look good enough to eat.
