In 2006, Kittiwat Unarrom began baking bread in the shape of human body parts to attract customers into his father’s family-run bakery located in a small village 65 miles (105 km) east of Bankok, Thailand. Kittiwat, who learned the family business at the age of ten never intended to sell his grotesque loafs commercially. “The first series was edible, but they were not delicious.”, admitted Kittiwat who has since improved his recipe. Over the past decade, Unarrom has learned to utilize nuts, raisins, and glazes to make his edible works of art more delicious and visually disgusting. Every head, hand, foot, internal organ and torso Kittiwat creates is hand-painted. To perfect his craft, Kittiwat spends his free time studying anatomy and visiting forensic museums. The artist’s hard work and unique vision has gotten his work displayed in various galleries throughout Thailand. In addition, his ‘body bread’ is now available to the public at his family’s business,”I want to experiment and think art shouldn’t only exist in galleries or museums.”, says Unarrom. Thanks to Kittiwat’s creepy creations, the family’s bakery is thriving. Over the years the generic business has transformed into something that looks like Ed Gein’s “happy place”; Ultra-realistic human heads are displayed in individually-wrapped packages and various body parts hang from the walls by meat hooks. “I want to speak out on my religious beliefs and dough says it all”, explains Unarrom, “Baking human parts can show the audience how transient bread, and life, is. Also, my bread is still bread no matter how it looks.”.
