“Gluten Free Museum” Tumblr re-creates iconic images sans grains

No donuts. No spaghetti. Not even a blade of wheat in the field.

A mysterious French whiz has been posting amazing images on the Tumblr site “Gluten Free Museum,” re-imagining Van Gogh, The Simpsons and Pulp Fiction in a world without gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.

Gluten causes intestinal problems for people with celiac disease, but a gluten-free diet is becoming so popular that farmers are researching how to grow gluten-free wheat.

We haven’t been able to track down the artist, we’ll update this post if we do. Here’s a sample of his low-carb work, via Tumblr:

“American Gothic,” Grant Wood, 1930 (Gluten Free Museum)
“Lady and the Tramp,” Disney (Gluten Free Museum)
“The Siesta,” Vincent Van Gogh, 1890 (Gluten Free Museum)
“Summer,” Arcimboldo, 1572 (Gluten Free Museum)
“The Simpsons,” Matt Groening (Gluten Free Museum)
