You might know Nathan from the 5th season of Britain’s Got Talent where he created a portrait of comedian and judge Michael McIntyre on stage using nothing else than toast and Marmite.

The young artist explains that ‘food is something that has to be enjoyed while it is also the perfect medium to unleash your creativity’.
