Sweet Art

Montreal-based artist Shelley Miller has found a new use for sugar, and it's got nothing to do with dessert. Using a technique quite similar to they way decorative icing is piped onto a cake, Miller replicated ancient mosaics, historical Portuguese tiles, and decorative street art—all in a water-soluble medium.

Beyond the novelty of being edible street art, the imagery in Miller's work—which has been installed in Brazil, among other former sugar-hubs—is a direct reference to the once-booming sugar industry and the slave trade that fueled it.
