Sevincy believes that sugar today is the rea "alcohol for children".
"Do not allow your children to become an object of the corporate industry. Through my art works I show how to live without sugar. In this creative struggle, I combine hyperrealism, pop art and abstraction," said the artist.
The unusual "desserts" by Sevincy literary grasps the imagination even more than the traditional desserts.
"My desserts just demolish the imagination, unlike traditional desserts from the "sweet poison". Often, this kind of visualization is called "cherry on the cake", I also add a fez, a symbol of the culture of our great-grandfathers at the top of my work, which is designed to protect your head from poison and decorate your life," she added.
