Ripley’s Believe It or Not! London hosts pop-up exhibition of artwork by ‘foodscape’ artist

“Stop playing with your food” is a familiar phrase heard around family dinner tables across the country, but that is exactly what ‘foodscape’ artist Carl Warner does for a living.

This festive season, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! London is hosting a special pop-up exhibition of Warner’s delicious-looking landscapes created using foodstuffs as well as a bespoke Christmas-themed commission.


Visitors to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! between 30 November 2013 and 8 January 2014 can view a selection of Warner’s captivating ‘foodscape’ photography which includes everything from cottages built out of candy to seas of smoked salmon and cabbages.

View the ‘London Skyline’ as you’ve never seen it before, iconic landmarks such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, The London Eye and Tower Bridge made from fruit and veg.


Cocoa lovers will also enjoy the ‘Chocolate Express’, an old fashioned steam train rumbling through a mountain range created entirely from chocolatey treats.

Exclusively for visitors to central London’s most bizarre attraction this Christmas, Warner is creating ‘Crockerville’, a festive village scene made from over 2,000 cookies, chocolate rocky road and has taken over three weeks to complete.


The model will take pride of place in the exhibition surrounded by a range of Warner’s other iconic foodie works.

Carl Warner will also be meeting visitors to the exhibition and hosting question and answer session about his work at the attraction on 30 November between 2pm and 4pm to inspire ‘wannabe’ ‘foodscape’ artists and sign copies of his latest book.


Visitors to the Carl Warner Foodscapes pop-up exhibition can also enjoy exploring the rest of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! London which boasts more than 700 wonderfully weird exhibits including a portrait of Kate Middleton made from lipstick kisses, a life-sized, hand-knitted Ferrari and authentic Amazonian shrunken heads.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! London is open seven days a week, 365 days a year from 10am until 12 midnight.
