Bacon Art: The Good, The Bad and the Totally Bizarre

Take a look at some of these bacon-inspired works and try not to drool too much

In honor of International Bacon Day (yep, there's an international bacon day: Saturday, August 31st), we’ve rounded up the most amazing bacon-inspired pieces of art ever. Behold:

Bacon Mona Lisa

Questions like “who?” and “why?” get in the way of more important ones like “Is it disrespectful to want to consume the Mona Lisa?” (File under questions we didn’t expect to ask ourselves today).

We like to think whoever created this print of a Boston Terrier surfing on a board made of bacon showed their work to a friend who replied, “You know what’s missing? Three pieces of flying bacon,” and the rest was history.

Bacon Dots Print

Bacon Dots Print

Perhaps this pixilated work is a reflection of the ambiguity of origins and a sharp biting analysis of the futile nature of social mobility, indicating that no matter how an individual moves through life it is only color palettes and perspective that changes. Or maybe they just wanted to see bacon made out of dots.
