Will Cotton.

Will Cotton‘s art skyrocketed to attention recently due to Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” album cover. However, his unconventional experimentation with food and various art mediums dates back to the 1990s. Here are some of Cotton’s works and a video of him at work in his studio:

I’m a huge fan and I hope his work will go far. These images were gathered from the press releases on Will Cotton’s website and their respective sources, so I do not claim credit for them. Hope you all enjoyed this brief pictorial introduction to his work. If you’re interested to know more, do visit http://www.willcotton.com
