Now, before getting to these amazing 25 colourful illustrations which use food to a whole new level, imagine this! You know that moment when you're really hungry and you've still got half an hour of that really important meeting and someone is just speaking endlessly and all you can think about is food? And then you get on Instagram, scroll down and down and down until you find some really wonderful colourful illustrations which make perfect use of food and you don't know whether you're happy you found them or really miserable you're hungry? Well, yes, it's a complex feeling, but it's real and it can happen to anyone who discovers artist Jesuso Ortiz's artworks.
The Spain-based creative imagines cute characters as a combination of crayon lines and real food. The combinations are incredible and the joined perspectives create an incredible effect on the eye. A three-dimensional real fruit, also very vibrant in colour is put together with a minimalist type of drawing, creating something fresh, contemporary and with a dart of spontaneity. Much like a sketch, only it is more than a sketch.
We just love this type of art which really challenges what you'd think of art. It's no longer just oil paintings and studied musical notes. The contemporary art world is continuously working on coming out with new forms of expressing oneself. Not all of this will stay, but we think that in time, we'll get another type of art to sit there, quietly, among the other classic 7 queens. Aren't you excited for this? There have been a lot of voices claiming that our era hasn't created any real cultural movement, but with how things are working out in the present, our era might create and settle a new artistic method of expression.
