Forget Lady Gaga’s Poker Face

Lady Gaga’s famous for her Poker Face – now Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay has his very own Pizza Face.

Food artist Nathan Wyburn, famous for his appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, has used his craft for his very own take on the Bluebirds’ promotion to the Premier League.

Nathan, 23, created marmite-on-toast portraits of media mogul Simon Cowell in the 2011 talent show.

But he abandoned toast this time and depicted City captain Mark Hudson, owner Vincent Tan and manager Mackay in tomato puree, mushrooms and courgettes on a pizza base.

The fine art graduate said: “I live just round the corner from the stadium, so I’m always in the middle of the matchday excitement. I was at home during the big game and I heard the roar from the stadium.”

He added: “All my family support Cardiff City. I think it is great they have been promoted.”

Since his appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, Nathan has travelled the globe to exhibit his creations.

The artist, who recently created the face of Baroness Thatcher out of coal, said: “I wanted to experiment with something I hadn’t used before. Marmite is something people either love or hate but everybody loves pizza. It’s the sort of food you might eat while you’re watching a match.”

Hudson said he was impressed by the creations.

He said: “The pizzas look amazing. The likeness of the three of us is brilliant. I can’t believe Nathan has created them just out of toppings. He’s a talented guy.”

The portraits were commissioned by the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cardiff and will be on display in the hotel bar for the rest of the week.

General manager Jens Hallman said: “The team has made us, its fans, the city and Wales extremely proud and we wanted to do something memorable to mark the occasion.

“Nathan has done an incredible job of creating these pizza portrait masterpieces and I hope the team will see it as a fitting tribute for all of their hard work and dedication over the past season.”
