This Hip-Hop Food Artist Has Won Instagram

You've seen art on the streets. Well, now get ready for #ArtintheEats. It's a hashtag project started by the mysterious New Jersey-based @tishacherry. When we stumbled across her work in the French magazine Fricote, our jaws dropped a little. It's pop culture meets puns meets pretzels. The nurse by day, artist by night finds daily fun in creating mini masterpieces with everything from strawberries to sushi to Cookie Butter (which is a thing and we're freaking out a little). The subject matter? Rappers, characters from The Simpsons, and fashion labels. Right? So good.
Lately Instagram has seemed to turn into one big more-artsy-than-thou competition, so we find Tisha's playful attitude super refreshing. Her work speaks for itself, literally — and we dare you to not be happy like Pharrell here. Despite what our mamas taught us, it is cool to play with your food.
