Artist Constructs Series of Elaborate and Colorful Jelly Bean Mosaics

People can make art out of just about anything these days. From Legos to pancakes, the only limit on what you do seems to come from having a limited imagination. That certainly goes for Kristen Cummings, an artist who specializes in constructing intensely colorful 3-D jelly bean mosaics. She also happens to be Jelly Belly’s “artist-in-residence.”

Cummings typically uses a spray adhesive to make the beans stick appropriately for her mosaics, which are 4 feet by 5 feet and use on average 12,000 jelly beans in total. It takes Cummings between 75 and 100 hours to make each piece, from the initial planning stages to the final resin. That is seven days of labor, and according to the artist, a little snacking. But who wouldn’t want a little sugar pick-me-up after all of that careful work?
