Meat. Art.

November 12, 2008 12:01 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Artist Simone Racheli finds inspiration all around him. Born in Florance, Italy and residing in Rome he works with a variety of media to sculpt some amazing pieces. He’s also known to sketch a thing or two but our main reason for introducing Simone Racheli to you is the look of bacon.

As you can see in the photograph above, Simone Racheli has been known to blend the look of meat with the representation of everyday objects. In this case, a bacon-looking bicycle. This sculpture is part of a larger series of meat-themed objects such as a toilet, an iron, and more.

We commend Simone Racheli on his bold use of unlikely media to create such carnivorous concoctions. We hope to one day see a continuation of this series with a higher concetration of realistic-looking bacon wrapped around everyday objects from the kitchen. Imagine…bacon-wrapped refridgerators, spatulas, dinner plates, etc.

Long live Simone Racheli! Long live bacon!
