I would like to introduce you to my favorite thing; food. I am not just talking about taste,

I mean everything about it. “Fake food”(or “Food replica”) , which looks exactly like real food, is usually made of wax, plastic or silicone.

“Food sample miniatures”, which are much smaller than the real meal and “fake food”,

are made to elaborate upon minor details including packaging or font.

Some meals are even re-packaged using phrases, without any pictures which allow me to visualize the meals using only my imagination.

I love looking at these things but of course, I also love drawing them.

I admire trick art which is basically very exquisite art to cause an optical illusion,

so that people can play with it and are amazed by it. That’s the reason why trick art has fascinated me.

I would myself like to create the enjoyable paintings using friendly elements such as food.
