HILLSIDE – An artist known for his paintings of hamburgers is launching a new venture to help food banks around the nation, including the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
The Burger Show, a national traveling art exhibit of burger paintings by artist, Ludvic, offers prints and posters for sale at www.TheBurgerShow.com with a portion of proceeds benefiting food banks.
Ludvic is a well-known food painter and recently completed his second exhibit at the James Beard House in New York City this year. He painted his first burger about five years ago and revisited the subject two years ago. There are over twenty burgers completed and the artist is painting new burgers all the time.
“I always paint what I love to eat,” says the artist when explaining why he paints burgers. Ludvic continues, “But as a painter, when I look at a hamburger I see color and texture, and I try to capture those variations. It is a very creative subject for me, and I always get excited about painting a new burger. The chefs creating these burgers find beauty in the simplest of meals. That’s what I do in my art – seek out the beauty of simplicity.”
“The ultimate part of this program is that I am able to give back to those in need and we are calling on all “foodies” and burger lovers to help out. Food banks have incredible pressures on them to serve more and more people. If my paintings can in any way assist in helping provide meals to the hungry, then I have exceeded any goal I set for my art.
“We are proud to be able to help with this vital need. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey was one of the first to come aboard with The Burger Show. They saw the potential and liked the idea. We are proud to help them.”
New “Burgers Feed the Soul” posters are currently available on the website and start as low as $10 with 20% of proceeds benefiting the food banks.
