Even if you're not an art lover you've probably heard of surrealism, but how about cerealism?
US artist Ernie Button, 45, from Arizona has come up with a wacky new creation which features edible landscapes made from breakfast cereals. He spends up to a week creating the cunningly put together scenes which 'explore the evolution of breakfast cereals.'
Button said: 'The idea for "Cerealism" was a trip to the grocery store. When I was a youngster, cereal was a luxury item. A brand name cereal was a rarity in our house as they were consistently more expensive. Something like Cap'n Crunch made for pure breakfast heaven as a child.

LAME! Very lame. The folks that make the Rose Bowl Parade floats are far more talented. This looks like a Junior High art project.

I’d rather see a 3-D Dali piece with real melted clocks and whatnot.

Good grief. They wasted page space on this? It looks like something an elementary student would produce. Art? I think not.
Don’t listen to all these curmudgeons. I thought it was pretty cool. Even used one as my desktop picture.
What source of funding supports such trash?
