Duvel Oil Painting

Mike Geno, food artist extraordinaire, has painted everything from bacon and bread to sushi and donuts. However, it was his cheese series that caught our eye, particularly this lovely portrait of a yellow wedge of Duvel, with a striking black rind. Geno uses oil on wood for this series, which is the perfect medium to capture the texture of sliced cheese. What you’re left with is a cheesy glamour shot that’s pretty enough to eat!
