Artist creates portraits of famous faces using Marmite on toast and other foods

He said: “It leant itself to other figures too like Lady Gaga and the Royal Family.

“I then branched out in to other materials.”

One portrait is one of Rowan Atkinson’s Mr Bean made from bakes beans, and another of Brendan O’Carroll’s character Mrs Brown created from coffee stains.

Nathan, of Cardiff appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2011. He compares his works to pop art like that pioneered by Andy Warhol. He said: “I see myself outside the box and I’m very happy with it.”
