Working with Spanish artist Anto Lloveras from LAPIEZA, I’ve been drawing more food objects than usual. I’ve eaten all of the food objects I’ve drawn. It’s interesting to think I’ve consumed all of these items.

Here’s a small selection of my  recent daily posts to Instagram. All drawings are oil pastel on paper.

Franfrantou. Weserstrasse 53, 12045 Berlin.

This show presented an opportunity to develop my work in a tight time window of just two weeks. I focused on working quickly, which helped maintain a fresh feel to the final pieces.
