Sushi Art




Illustrator and makizushi artist Takayo Kiyota creates a wide variety of images into his sushi.

When preparing makizushi, the ingredients are placed on rice and the chef will use a bamboo mat to roll everything together. The makizushi is then cut into 6 or 8 pieces, revealing the ingredients. In the case of Kiyota, or Tama-chan as he likes to be known, the ingredients reveal anything from aliens to taxis.
