Luigi Benedicenti - Art & Food

This post owes Jama's Alphabet Soup a huge debt.  Without her fabulous post contributed to Weekend Cooking I would never have known about this artist.

This art combines art and food – how can you go wrong!
All of these works are painted – they are not photographs!

The artist is Italian and mainly does hyper realistic paintings of Italian pastries.  He must get so hungry!  But he doesn't eat the pastries because he has diabetes.   

He was born in 1948 so that makes him 70 or so.  He has said that his aim is to make things that are more real than real.

He did do some savoury food but not much in comparison.
