Daniele Barresi is well-known for transforming fruits and veggies into exquisite sculptures. His organically ornate pieces have ap-peel-ed to foodies and art lovers the world over, helping him attract more than 88,500 followers on Instagram.
The Italian-trained chef, who is now working out of Sydney, can carve out detailed sculptures of animals and embroidery from fruit in just a few hours. He receives commissions from brands to do custom carvings, although he loves to carve birds, flowers and patterns.
Daniele Barresi makes carvings of birds, flowers and patterns out of fruits and vegetables like broccoli.
Barresi started carving fruit 11 years ago after noticing some intricately carved pumpkins at a wedding. As soon as he got home, he began practicing carving. His wife has been his 'harshest critic' since “she won’t just tell me she likes it until she thinks it’s perfect."
