A Japanese sushi chef who goes by the name of “Tama-chan” creates Makizushi that aren’t just delicious, they’re also clever works of art.

Requiring a bit of visualization, the artist puts the relevant ingredients within the sushi, picturing how the cross-section of the roll would look like once he slices it up.

His subject matter is quite diverse, ranging from recreations of famous paintings, such as The Scream by Edvard Munch and Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer, to kawaii kitties and cartoon characters to landscapes and even a simplified world map.

Tama-chan has even begun teaching classes in Tokyo’s Omotesando neighborhood so that others may learn how to simultaenously exercise artistic expression while also preparing tasty pieces of rolled sushi.
