First of all, you won’t find watercolors, pastels or oils in portraits created by 25-year-old Nathan Wyburn. Whether Twiggy crafted out of Twiglets, Michael McIntyre with Marmite, or Rowan Atkinson from baked beans, his celebrity portraits combine the pop-art sensibilities of Andy Warhol with non-traditional materials, creating art which is refreshing and unique. Nathan Wyburn is a Welsh Fine Art graduate who specializes mostly in creating iconic celebrity portraits and ‘Pop culture’ imagery with non-traditional mediums. In particular, food, such as Marmite on Toast, Sauces, Sugar, Chocolate, Beans, Pizza, Sweets, and etc. Besides, he uses other everyday items, such as Newspaper cut outs, Soil, Candles, Toothpaste, Fake tan, Motor Oil, etc.
