Since a certain age, it’s only during the December/January festive season I indulge my craving for many otherwise forbidden foods. As such, featuring Luigi Benedicenti’s work seems the most appropriate thing to do for a first post this year as well as a farewell to enticing deliciousness for yet another.
Luigi Benedicenti is an eminent photorealistic artist from Italy. His oil paintings are rooted deeply into the old still-life values of Europe, but he developed his own unique style which is referred to as extreme realism. His oil paintings are the actual representation of contemporary Italian patisserie, drinks and ice creams. Source: www.eexploria.com
