Painting My Food
July 9, 2022 @ 13:00 - July 10, 2022 @ 17:00free entrance
Payal Puthran is exhibiting food and recipe illustrations during this two-day art show.
Food, to her, is an emotion that connects and unites people. More than the sights, what stays with Payal long after visiting a new land is the local food. Being an expat since a decade, it is but natural to be hit by those waves of nostalgia. During one such phase, she started creating paintings of food from her hometown, Mangalore, India. As time went by, she created paintings of local Dutch food as memorabilia for her expat friends leaving the Netherlands.
Recipe illustrations materialized out of mindless doodling while listening to her mother’s instructions of making an Indian dessert over the phone. Today, Payal enjoys breaking down a recipe into painted-out steps and has created nostalgic illustrations for her clients over India, US and Europe.
Visit her exhibition showing painted ‘Stroopwafel’s, ‘Dropjes’, ‘Haring’ and recipes for ‘Stampot’, ‘Chai’, ‘Biryani’ amongst others.
