Nudes, Scuba Divers and Skateboarders: Food Art at Basel

Art Basel, which ended over the weekend earned top dollar and, we hope, signaled a turnaround in both the local and national economies. Hell even the Wall Street Journal seems to think so. The special Saturday art walk was jammed, but my favorites were the fairs at Red Dot and Art Miami, the latter of which has become a monstrosity. Even food art drew some highbrow notice. The work of David Datuna, at left wasn't high art, but made me laugh. See the jump for more food fun.
