Sushi is one thing, but “Shoeshi” takes on a whole other meaning when it comes to sushi artist, Yujia Hu.
Based in Milan, Yujia Hu is behind the popular Instagram account called The Onigiri Art, which features many eye-grabbing photos of onigiri sushi (Japanese-style plain white rice usually wrapped with nori) designed after high-end fashion ready-to-wear and even musical artists.
Among the popular designs are Clothing from Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci, Jordan shoes, Nike slides, and even artists like Childish Gambino, Cardi B, Kanye West, Lil Pump, Tekashi 69, Nav, French Montana, and Amine! And the list goes on. In fact, scroll through up above to see the designs and guess what artist they are for yourself!
It all started with Hu just wanting to cleverly promote his family’s restaurant Sakana Sushi, but as you can see, it ended up becoming much more than that. Now, the talented chef-artist has requests coming in from many around the world, including Fall Out Boy’s Pete!
As for Hu, he has definitely taken sushi art to a whole new level and according to us, there’s nothing fishy about that.
