Five on Friday: 5 Unreal Paintings that Look Good Enough to Eat

Tjalf Sparnaay paints ordinary objects—a fried egg, a crushed coca cola can, a crumbled receipt. Except he uses such extreme detail in his oil paintings, that it brings these objects to life. Really, just look at some of the photos below of his food paintings and tell us they don’t make your mouth water and stomach rumble.

The Dutch artist’s style is called megarealism or hyperrealism, a painting style that resembles a high-resolution photograph. And his aim is to bring beauty to ordinary things in life, like food we eat every day.

Check out his unreal paintings and tell us which is your favorite.
