Beyonce: Dark Chocolate Portrait


Thanks to an extraordinary approach to painting, Pavel Bondar creates portraits of celebrities from food. So, the portrait of the American R’n’B singer, actress, dancer and model is made of dark chocolate, which, according to Pavel, fully conveys the violent temperament of the recognized sex symbol. “The portrait is not just painted with chocolate, this material is best suited for my perception of the image of Beyonce,” says Pavel Bondar. – She is a little arrogant, bitchy, expressive, dynamic. I conveyed all this with expressive strokes of dark chocolate. At first, I painted Beyonces portrait with the chocolate bar itself, which melted more and more in my hand. And at the end of the work, my hands were covered in chocolate, I made the final strokes with my fingertips.
