Foodmasku makes meals into masks and then eats them. Antonius Oki Wiriadjaja, 39, is a multimedia artist based in New York City, New York. He is also known as Foodmasku, which is a dual-language pun; In Bahasa Indonesia and Javanese, Food - mas - ku can also mean “Food of my brother.” He is a former Fulbright U.S. Scholar in Indonesia and also a survivor of a shooting in his neighborhood in New York City which inspired his advocacy for gun violence prevention. He created the Instagram account Foodmasku in April 2020, during a video meeting when a colleague couldn’t turn off a pickle face filter. He took his dinner and placed it on his face as a mask. He heard laughter for the first time in a month. The project turned into a daily food face-mask selfie and was selected by The New York Times as one of "five art accounts to follow on Instagram now." He has been minting his work as non-fungible tokens since March 2021.
