Milan, The Last Supper (1997)

This work is Vik Muniz's version of Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper (1498). Although Muniz's medium is technically photography, he used chocolate syrup to create the image we see. The glossy appearance of the syrup makes viewers wonder whether it is the photography, the background, or the syrup itself in certain areas of the picture. Vik Muniz is multi-talented in that he is an artist with many different mediums, ending in photography mostly, as well as an illusionist. His works play with the eyes of the viewers and often trick and deceive them.
