Edward Cabral and his pumpkin artwork takes pumpkin carving to the next level. The artist lives in Chicago and likes to incorporate iconic pop culture visuals in his impressive designs.

With Halloween just around the corner, it means you’re probably going to attempt your very own pumpkin carving soon. And when you do, if you’re feeling particularly creative then Edward Cabral and the pumpkin artwork he produces would serve as some great inspiration.

The artist doesn’t only design pumpkin artwork but also likes to create art using cakes, sandwiches, and ceramics too. “I work a lot in media that cannot be archived,” notes Edward Cabral. “Like food and unfired ceramic, because I enjoy watching my work decay.”

Much of his pumpkin carving can be seen at the annual Jack-O’-Lantern Spectacular, a Halloween festival in Louisville, Kentucky.

How Edward Cabral Creates His Pumpkin Artwork

Cabral’s jack-o’-lanterns are undoubtedly works of art, it’s just that his pumpkin artwork uses a squash plant as a canvas with which to compose something that is equal to a painting.

And Edward Cabral toils over his pumpkin carving too, because a single piece can take over six hours to make. Sometimes even longer, he tells Mashable.

The process starts with him finding an image he wants to use, then he has to find the right-sized pumpkin to use as the canvas. Once that is done he draws the design onto the pumpkin, uses paint for the middle tones, then caves out the finer details and highlights various parts.

The results are some of most spectacular pumpkin artworks you’re ever likely to see. They include carved scenes from films like Blade Runner, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, along with the moon landing, and classical artworks.
