“I first find a picture of what I want to create, whether it’s a celebrity, a landscape, an animal,” queer artist Harley Langberg (pictured) tells Queerty. “Then I analyze the picture, match up colors to food, then go shopping for the ingredients.”

28-year-old Langberg is a self-described “food artist” who lives and works in New York City. Some of his creations include portraits of icons like Madonna, Lady Gaga and Karl Lagerfeld, among others.

He first got into creating food art back about three years ago.

“It was in the fall of 2013 when I lived down in the west village and I was in Chelsea market and saw photographs of a food artist,” he recalls. “I was so amazed, inspired and excited by the works that I went home to try to create something that night. From then on I fell in love with it.”

Langberg says he hopes his work both entertains and inspires audiences to think in new and creative ways.

“I hope they take away an appreciation for art and creativity and for pushing the boundaries and thinking outside the box,” he says. “I also hope to inspire people to pursue their own creative path because creativity exists in everyone.”
