Tamil Nadu woman makes paintings good enough to eat

Tamil Nadu woman makes paintings good enough to eat

In April, Varuna Sridhar, an artist from the southern Indian city of Chennai, shared her painting of a cup of coffee on social media. The reaction was beyond her wildest dreams: Twitter users were confused whether she had uploaded a photograph or a painting, and it got tens of thousands of likes and shares, including from celebrities.

After trying out different styles, the 21-year-old artist is now practising hyper-realism, a style of art where objects are depicted in a strikingly realistic fashion. And her pet subject is food – especially the everyday food of her home state, Tamil Nadu.
