One man's trash is another man's treasure… or woman in this case.

Saudi artist Ghada Al-Rabee makes delicious art using chocolate and candy wrappers.

Her colourful creations are recreations of famous paintings with a touch of Arab culture.

Rabee’s eye candy has been around since 2010, which she started making after being inspired during a visit to an art exhibition in Dubai just two years earlier.

“I remember the number of times beautiful chocolate wrappers, with their bright colours, had drawn my attention to them, and that’s when I decided to make something beautiful. Since then, I have done several experiments to implement my ideas using candy wrappers and came out with satisfactory results,” she told The Huffington Post.

"I buy a lot of chocolate, my family sends me some too, but it's never enough," the 39-year-old told Love in Saudi.
