Food in Art

please enjoy my highly important research findings of Food in Art.  one thing i realised while putting this together is that many artists are completely OBSESSED with donuts. maybe the oozing of the paint reminds them of the oozing of the inside of jam filled donut, but there it is. all images courtesy of Artsy.

  1. Love this post. I’m a painter and sometimes when you’re pushing the paint around the canvas it starts to feel a bit like food. Great roundup! Will Cotton is definitely the master of this genre.

  2. These are adorable, artsy and drool-inducing! I love art inspired by food; always have, though I can’t say why. This was a really cute post. The peanut butter cup repair definitely had me smiling!

  3. Hello. If you guys are going to use my copyrighted work as free content without clearing it with me first, I wonder if it is too much to ask that you spell my name correctly.

    • hi Christopher, sorry about the incorrect spelling of your name. it would have been a typo on my part, not a deliberate mistake. I have removed your artwork from this post.
