Milan-based artist Yujia Hu, better know as The Onigiri Art, continues to do what he does best as he turns today’s most hyped kicks into edible pieces of sushi. He successfully combines two of his passion object – sushi and sneakers to express himself.
While sushi sneakers may not be the most appetizing combination, Hu’s creations are a playful expression of a cosmopolitan culture. What would Milan be without food and fashion? By mixing them, Hu paints an edible portrait of the city.
Every single piece is carefully formed from traditional sushi ingredients with additional details painted on afterward with toothpicks. Talented chef is using black seaweed to wrap the shoes as a leather and salmon slices are artfully cut for red accents.
Yukia shares her work with her 2,500 Instagram followers, who are all in awe of the artist’s skills.
