Infused with vibrant colors and disarming wit, the food and object couplings created by Vanessa McKeown could trick anyone into a smile. Because in her world, cross-breeding fruit, candy, glitter, doughnuts, hair or balloons is the norm.

The London-based art director is known for putting together visuals so confusingly absurd, that they actually cross over to the realm of adorable. Launching various photographic series that range from strange food compositions (Good Gone Bad) to Barbies drowning in candy (Barbie Sugarcoma), McKeown gained a rapt following on Instagram: so far, she’s got 87.7k people under her creative spell (we’re one of them!). The cheekiness of her work has been a gateway to amazing collaborations with clients including Nike, the New York Times, Paypal, Miu Miu and the New Yorker, among others.
