Before you continue just check that you have had your lunch else these next pieces of art could get you salivating.
In this blog post we present to you the British ‘foodscaper’ that is Carl Warner. Carl has been creating theses delicious masterpieces for a while now and it all started with his first food landscape “Mushroom Savannah.” Over the years Carl spent time developing intricate these foodscapes which has attracted a lot of media attention from the TV, magazines and newspapers. It is amazing to think of the effort that goes into these artworks. They are all created in Carl’s’ London studio using a large triangular table top and the scenes are then photographed in layers.
Carl says – “The scenes are photographed in layers from foreground to background and sky as the process is very time-consuming and so the food quickly wilts under the lights. Each element is then put together in post production to achieve the final image.”
The images can take a lot of time to plan and may take up to two or three days to build and photograph, then a couple of days retouching and fine tuning to blend all the elements together. You may catch him at the local supermarket staring at vegetables just to find the right shaped broccoli to use as a tree!
Carl has a book which features these works and the inspiration behind them titled “Carl Warner’s Food Landscapes” and also a children’s book “A World of Food.”
