Daniele Barresi is an award winning carving designer originating from Italy who now resides in Sydney, Australia. He is world renown for his extraordinary artistic carving abilities involving a range of mediums including but not limited to fruits, vegetables, cheeses and soaps. Now 26, he’s been carving foods since he was just seven years old.
Despite their different textures and densities, Barresi carves each one of them seemingly with ease to reveal beautiful flowers and creatures hiding behind the skin and rinds. Barresi speaks of his food art carving in an almost spiritual way. “When I touch my knife, my mind gives up to the heart and transmits directly to the hands, giving different forms to the decorations. It’s like magic”.
The details that he’s able to achieve with tools including knives, scalpels, peelers, and melon ballers makes them look too good to eat.
