Food-Inspired Street Art Around The World (PHOTOS)

When images of New York-Based street artist Hanksy's latest works popped up recently -- Hanksy usually puts images of Tom Hanks on copies of work from famed British street artist Banksy -- our eyes were drawn to one food-inspired piece.

Specifically, a "Die Hard"-era Bruce Willis holding a stack of pies with the words, "Pie Hard." It got us to thinking, how many other works of street art are out there that pay homage to our food favorites?

Click through the below gallery for a peek at some urban tastiness.

If you can identify any of the artists below, let us know in the comments.
