foodie paint


*Bangbang


*George Flegel


*Frans Snyders


*Andy Warhol


i was just browsing art awhile ago. and i thought of about food paintings. and i like andy warhol.

i remember, we have a painter in our family. his surname is serna. i never really knew him, he passed on before i was born. he was an inlaw of of my grandfather. nobody really captured his greatness in painting. but he sure got a lot. i have seen so many paintings from some of our relatives houses. even in our house. when i was little, we grew up looking at this big painting of filipino fruits in our dining area. it was just like the first painting i posted (by bangbang)

my aunt from iloilo got that painting and displayed at her house. i think they restored it. its a huge painting with that very big brown old frame with it. i have to take a photo of that when i go back to iloilo, so you all could see it. i think that painting is older than me. maybe around 1920s, more or less.

at our space in tagaytay, my folks got some paintings by angel cacnio, he hails from malabon and i know he is a friend of our relative (serna) i admire his works, more on the filipino culture, family, lifestyle.

anyways, i just remember how we ate right in front of that filipino fruits' painting. little lizards always hid at the back of that painting.

i think his wife still has every painting he did. some are displayed, some aren't.

In college, I was an art history major. One of my major term paper was on Dutch vanitas paintings. I was fascinated by tablescapes and half eaten food in paintings. Who knew that someday I would have a food blog? Thanks for posting these pics. I've never seen that Andy Warhol.
