Using Jelly Beans, Artist Recreates Classic Artworks
A few years ago, California-based artist Kristen Cumings was commissioned by candy company Jelly Belly to produce several pieces of jelly bean art to add to its collection ‘Jelly Belly Masterpieces of Confectionary Art’.
Cumings recreated classic works of art using 9,000 to 12,000 jelly beans and 50 to 60 hours, for each 4x6-feet mural.
Colors of the famous paintings—such as Vincent van Gogh’s ‘The Starry Night’, Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’, and Katsushika Hokusai’s ‘The Great Wave’—were matched to precision, using Jelly Belly’s 50 jelly bean flavors.
Jelly Belly also sponsored singer Kina Grannis 288,000 jelly beans to create a stop-motion music video last year.
