Famous Food Paintings

Russian photographer and food stylist Tatiana Shkondina has merged her two passions together to create brilliant works of art. Paying tribute to some of the greats including Dalí, Van Gogh, and Warhol, she has managed to recreate their famous works by playing with food. I learned about food photography in high school yet this is a completely different interpretation. Starting with a basic outline, she then picks various ingredients to use as the media, and completes masterpieces that look too good to eat.
