About Matija Erceg

While most Instagram food artists attempt to create appetizing images, Matija Erceg creates food art that is borderline repulsive by manipulating bologna, shrimp, and chicken breasts into components of things like headphones, skateboards, and microphones. A rack of ribs unzips to become a purse, a revolver is loaded with five little smokies sausages, and sliced ham becomes a bow on a present. With each object set against a monochromatic background, Matija says the photos are an experiment in context, an experiment that has 38k Instagram followers and fans in the art world with write-ups in international publications like Beautiful/Decay, iGNANT, and Garage.
