Illustrator Takayo Chioyta, who goes by the name of Tama-chan, has figured out a way to turn sushi in wondrous works of art. The breadth of detail and precision in her sushi art is so impressive that to call her masterpieces food almost seems insulting.

The artist incorporates food coloring, seaweed, soy sauce, and green wasabi to color her pieces. And the designs on her pieces cover everything from iPhones, taxis, battleships, and skulls to Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl With A Pearl Earring“ or Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.”

Tama-chan offers several classes and workshops in Tokyo that teach people about her sushi making process. The classes take place in Tokyo’s Omotesando neighborhood, and some are even offered in English.
