Victor Nunes’ “Faces” series shows a lively, hilarious cartoon world where hair is made of pretzels and brains are made of walnuts.

The artist uses recycled everyday objects and scraps of food to build his drawings, which are often whimsical and highly detailed.

Nunes’ work is an example of creativity at its best and most childlike. At the same time, the artist’s use of recycled items makes a clear statement about the importance of sustainability. No object is ever unusable within his studio.
