Playful Sculptures Feature Chickpeas for Heads


If you aren’t looking closely, you might pass by this funny series by Sadi Tekin. The Istanbul-based illustrator and industrial designer created these lighthearted photos featuring chickpeas in tiny installations. Entitled Mr. Chick Pea And Friends, the series is filled with little illustrations drawn on the surface of chickpeas, which are then placed throughout the city of New York.

Around the legumes, arms, legs, and bodies are drawn onto wooden beams and concrete slabs, while others don’t have any bodies at all. The expressive faces match perfectly with each situation in this playful example of food art. A man floating in coffee seems a bit melancholy about his plight while a series of five faces seem pensive about how they came to be placed along the surface of a keyboard. What an unexpectedly fun project!
