Gallery: Woman Makes Celebrity Portraits Out Of Cheese, Because Why Not?

Do you think celebrity culture is cheesy? So does English “food artist” Faye Halliday…but for her, it’s not just a figure of speech. To celebrate the beginning of British Cheese Week, she created portraits of celebrities like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Marilyn Monroe completely out of cheese (and a bit of sour cream dip) and gave them adorable names like “Justin Brie-ber.” There’s nothing to indicate that these portraits are an ironic commentary on crass pop culture iconography (her website is especially un-ironic), but I’m going to choose to interpret them that way anyhow, because it will make me like them more. Art means something different to everyone, man.
