Growing up I have always held an interest in art. My passion and love for it has continued to develop increasingly over the years. For me art has always been an expression of all my ideas, thoughts and emotions. It has allowed me to express myself and really develop as an individual. I think that’s why I wanted to incorporate both food and art on this platform because to me they are interlinked, and both allow freedom of expression and experimentation.
Florian Nicolle is an artist who I have followed over the years. His work to me is just breath-taking and thought invoking. It allows me as a viewer to think and want to know more. I love the mystery and intrigue behind his illustrations. He blends layers of newsprint, watercolour, pencil, and digital painting to create rich, frenetic portraits that seem to fly off the canvas.
“I try to create an image that retains its freshness of the first paint stroke, the expressions of the line have to be very free and spontaneous. While keeping a rigorous drawing.”
