Sugary Artwork at the Museum of Childhood

Here at Londonist, we aren't too shy to admit our love for sweets. But that love apparently doesn't hold a candle to the dedication of food artist Prudence Emma Staite. To celebrate the return of blue Smarties, Staite has re-imagined famous works of art with Smarties as her chosen medium. The collection, including Warhol's Marilyn Monroe, Seurat's Bathers, and Banksy's Chalk Farm Maid, is currently on display at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green. No word how long the exhibit will be on yet, but given the edible nature of Staite's work, it might be good to scoot over before anyone visitor's that have missed lunch get carried away. Or before London experiences an unseasonably warm day.
