LUIGI BENEDICENTI DOESN’T CARE THAT THIS POST WILL F*** WITH YOUR DIET.
This, from Flavourwire: "Luigi Benedicenti â€śextreme realismâ€ť lends itself beautifully to his oeuvre of decadent desserts â€” vibrant and succulent Italian pastries and other treats that look remarkably edible. "

This, from The Albemarle Gallery's (where he exhibits) Bio: " Luigi is a son of our times and as such he uses all the technical means at his disposal. The strong artificial lights utilized during the early stages of his paintings allow him to get the essence of the subject depicted and convey the same sensorial feelings that the object would produce in real life. Benedicentiâ€™s style â€“ clear, immediate, shiny of multicoloured reflections â€“ is the result of years of intense study and tireless practice."
Painting hyper-realist images of pastry, is, I think, a very worthy use of a prodigious talent.
