An artist has used everyday kitchen items to create popular characters from the Star Wars films.

Prague-based Kristian Mensa, aka Mr Kriss, has racked up more than 50,000 Instagram followers for his creative food and object transformations.

He draws over his photographs to create everything from Darth Vader made from a kitchen spatula to Chewbacca in tagliatelle – and said the inspiration for his latest project came to mind while cooking.

The 20-year-old said: “I love to play with simple and everyday objects, just to prove that inspiration is all around us.

“While I was waiting for some water to boil, I decided to go through my kitchen tools and turn them into some of the Star Wars characters.
