Medical student Michele Baldini, 20, from Mexico, has gone viral on Instagram for his works of art - created entirely from fried eggs.

It looks like playing with your food is actually a good thing.

Using the same canvas for each photo - a black frying pan - each of Baldini’s posts features an incredible image comprised using his favourite medium only - fried eggs.

According to Baldini, the idea started with a simple fried egg Yin Yang symbol and has grown from there.

And although he has experimented with other foods, fried eggs are his favourite.

Elaborate and incredibly detailed, the egg-based designs are impressive - and way too beautiful to eat.

Featuring creations ranging from a star-topped Christmas tree to an accurate recreation of the New York City skyline, each Instagram photo displays eggs more intricate than the next.

The artist has even succeeded in creating an eggy yet spot-on rendition of Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night.
