Japanese Artist’s Maddeningly Realistic Food Illustrations Have Our Mouths Watering

This Japanese artist says that he gets a lot of joy from hearing that his work looks tasty, and it’s a compliment he receives often. Yoshinobu Saito worked previously as a character designer, but recently it was his artistic forays into the world of gastronomy which have gained him attention online.

And it’s easy to see why. His work is almost maddeningly realistic. In particular, he seems to specialise in the tantalising glisten that many delicious foods have, the one that relentlessly and unforgivingly triggers our hunger pangs.

If you believe some sort of trick must be afoot, the artist has even provided a video showing how he created one of his digital paintings. He manually adds every individual gleaming brush stroke to the meat, giving it his signature hunger-inducing gloss.
