A feast for the eyes: Artist's incredible oil paintings of food look good enough to eat

This food certainly looks good enough to eat. But these mouth-watering creations would taste disgusting as they are, in fact, oil paintings.
They are the work of Dutch artist Tjalf Sparnaay, who has used his style of 'mega-realism' to create incredibly life-like pictures of chips, cheeseburgers and desserts.
But despite the greasy nature of some of his subject matter, the pieces are worth more than yesterday's chip wrappers - selling for an eye-watering £36,000.

Mr Sparnaay has spent the last 25 years perfecting his craft, painting every day foods with spectacular realism.
The 58-year-old said: 'I take the subjects of my oils from everyday reality, utilising trivial or mundane items, my intention is to give these objects a soul, a presence.'
