Artist Honors Marilyn Monroe With Bread
A New Zealand artist is keeping the memory of Marilyn Monroe alive with food Maurice Bennett decided to create an image of the actress’ face. Bennett created the image using more than six-thousand slices of bread.
Bennett — who’s known as “The Toast Man” — says he’s a fan of Marilyn’s. He adds that he was inspired by Andy Warhol’s previous work. The artist says his latest piece isn’t just the color of bread, as he “used paint on a major toast art work” for the first time. He says that the art reflects his “unique take on a global icon and an image known around the world.”
