Christopher Chiappa

The artist responsible for the amazing french fry sculpture is Christopher Chiappa! Huge thanks to Melissa for commenting on the original post and pointing me to the Kate Werble Gallery! The community here is such an amazing resource! Kate just sent over a couple images and it turns out the work is part of a diptych called “McMiracles”.
