The young artist Pavel Bondar undoubtedly surprises everyone with the flight of his boundless imagination. Presenting in his own way a unique art project “Tasty Faces” the author claims to be a real provocateur of our days. Pavel Bondar presents to the audience a series of portraits made in a very unusual way – the author creates his works from ordinary food.
The works of the young artist allow you to look at painting in a new way: portraits of the most famous people on the planet are made from food. Coffee, bread, wine, sushi, chocolate – Paul clearly does not limit himself in the choice of products. They are the material for him to paint his amazing portraits.
One way or another, Pavel explains the choice of products by the fact that these products are directly related to the heroes of his portraits. The portrait of Vincent Van Gogh, for example, is made of bread. A very subtle, unexpected work will definitely surprise everyone, give birth to unusual feelings in him. Bread as a material was chosen by the author for a reason – for a long time the famous Dutch artist lived in poverty, and ate only bread and water.
The exposition, which Pavel Bondar called “Tasty Faces”, uses photo-reproductions of his unique paintings. The originals themselves, according to the author, do not live long and deteriorate quickly. The fragility of this unusual painting makes Paul’s work extremely original. Pavel Bondar captures the stages of creating each of his “tasty” portraits on a video camera fixed above the canvas.
This allows you to trace the step-by-step creation of these amazing portraits on white paper. Red wine drying on the canvas, bitter chocolate spreading on the canvas, and bread exuding an extraordinary aroma – all these products replace the artist’s colors. And everything seems so simple and easy that immediately there is a desire to try this painting technique for yourself – well, at least in your plate.
This isn’t the first time food has inspired artists to create incredible pieces. Recently, we talked about the artist Karl Warner, who creates delicious landscapes from food in every sense.
