An artist who makes masks from his meals and then eats them.


Foodmasku is a pun in two languages. In Bahasa Indonesia and Javanese, mas – ku can mean my brother, my friend, or even my lover in the right context.

The Foodmasku Instagram account started in April 2020, after a colleague couldn’t turn off a filter that made her look like a pickle. Foodmasku took his dinner, placed it on his face and said, “Hey, I have a filter on as well!” He heard laughter for the first time in a month.
