Avocado Art Exists and It's Pretty Amazing

We all know avocados are having a moment right now. Everyone is more than willing to pay extra for guac, plus people can't get enough avocado toast for breakfast. Now, avocado art has become a thing, and it's actually really cool. In fact, there's an entire art show dedicated to the genre. Here is some of Australian artist Danielle Barresi's work that's featured in the display:
