What came first -the chicken, the egg or the paintbrush? (28 photos)

The man behind these hyper-realistic food photos paintings is Tjalf Sparnaay from Amsterdam. Hungry fella?

    For those wondering, #9 and #22 is the way the Dutch eat fries.

    #9 most times at a diner/snackbar

    #22 when you just went to a take away.

      I refer you to the movie Pulp Fiction. Scene 2
      I dunno, I didn't go into a Burger
      King. But you know what they put on
      french fries in Holland instead of




      I seen 'em do it. And I don't mean a
      little bit on the side of the plate,
      they fuckin' drown 'em in it.

    These are amazing. Just incredible. I'll be looking at these in a couple days on Thanksgiving, to get my appetite in the right mood.

  • mr. x

    pointless…why would you paint a photo realistic painting, when you can just take a hq photo

  • bse35

    so much food so little room for it

  • Mighty

    Fucking brilliant. I only have one negative comment- why would I want a painting that looks like a photograph? It's always good to know that the painter is still greater then the photographer, but there's a reason we're called PAINTERS and not photographers.

    • MonkeyMadness

      I agree. The guy is super talented but I see nothing that a camera can't produce. There is very little imagination to the paintings, nothing unique.

  • Geek

    Some of these, if you look hard enough, you can tell are paintings. But some you can’t!!! Wtf. That’s nuts. Awesome skills.

    #16 The top sandwich is butter and chocolate sprinkles! Sounds sketchy, tastes amazing. Also try chocolate sprinkles and peanut butter on toast. We Dutch know how it's done 🙂
