Avocado Art Is the Only Art You Need This Summer

Avocado Art Is the Only Art You Need This Summer

The Instagram trend follows the millennial obsession with this green fruit

Avocado art is made by carving designs into the flesh of an avocado and then photographing it.

There is a lot you can do with an avocado. It can be mashed and mixed with tomatoes, onions, and lime to make guacamole. It can be smeared on toast and sprinkled with chile flakes. It can go on hair as a hydrating mask. It can go on your face to keep skin supple. Millennials in particular seem to keep finding new things to do with the fruit.

That’s why it comes as no surprise that avocado art has become a “thing” on Instagram. The fad is positively booming on the photo app, with images of gorgeous carvings etched into the avocado’s meat. A simple search for “#avocadoart" will turn up posts featuring ornate patterns, Minecraft-inspired blocks, and cookie cutter designs of hearts and stars — all sculpted from avocado.

It doesn’t stop at the avocado flesh however; the carvings extend to the pits, which people are whittling down into gorgeous figurines. Those who are not handy with a paring knife but still want to try their hand at avo-art are gluing little figures to their avocados to create scenes. At the trend’s simplest, it’s a photo of the open fruit sprinkled with flowers, glitter, or confetti.

It’s almost enough to make us forget that avocados are food. Whether or not you use your avocado as a substitute for marble or plaster in your artwork, click here to find 15 ways to use them as a substitute for unhealthy fats in your food.
