Rice Balls Turned Into Pop Culture Characters

Gastronomy and art are often linked, literally. Thai artist Nawaporn Pax Piewpun knows how to make from rice an authentic dish with attractive design. From Pikachu, to Doraemon, also passing through the Star Wars characters, Nawaporn Pax creates succulent dishes where the rice becomes figurines that represent the popular world of television and film.

Her dishes have already traveled the world through social networks, where the young woman shares her culinary creations. On Instagram, Nawaporn is well-known as @peaceloving_pax, and has already gained nearly 130,000 followers. Meanwhile, she also reveals how she cooks and creates these funny little rice balls on her Youtube channel.

Undoubtedly, one must be endowed with a great imagination and talent to turn simple rice balls into pop culture characters, a project she has called “Cute Food”. She not only prepares her works with rice, but also creates amazing “cute” popular culture-inspired sandwiches too.
