You! Be Inspired! – The Hungry Games

by . September 3rd, 2012

The 2012 film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’s highly successful fictional novel entitled – The Hunger Games has earned a whopping $672,000,000 worldwide and as such can be considered a worldwide success in the realm of science fiction movies. But if you were expecting that we’ll be featuring anything related to that movie, I’m sorry to disappoint you but we won’t.

Instead, we’ll be taking a look at a very interesting form of art that originated in Japan that involves food – Bento Art! Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal that typically consists of rice, fish or meat and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables stored in a box-shaped container which is usually arranged and decorated to look like Japanese cartoon, comic book or video game characters as well as animals, people, buildings and even monuments.

For creative people, this amazing practice of arranging food into a visually appealing work of art is a very good example of how artists can make use of different colors and textures to create a coherence and harmony. That is the reason why we’ve searched a vast portion of the Internet to find the best looking bento art in the world. Here are some of them.









For the Japanese, the craft of making art out of bento is a way to bring smile into any homemaker’s children or husband once they open their lunch boxes. We hope that by bringing you this collection, that we were able to do the same to you.
