Swimming against the tide of the current proliferation of food blogs, illustrator David Meldrum has been documenting every item of food consumed each day for the last year, not online, but on paper in the form of daily illustrations. He began the project on June 15 last year and tomorrow will open an exhibition of all 365 drawings at the ARCH 402 Gallery in Hoxton…
In the drawings the artist lays bare both the delights and horrors of the modern diet as salads, bowls of delicious looking spaghetti, glasses of wine in elegant glasses find themselves rubbing shoulders with burgers from McDonalds, chocolate bars (Cadbury’s Freddo is a recurring theme) and packets of crisps. Here are a few, dare I say it, tasters of what to expect from the exhibition:
The Food Illustrator Project runs from tomorrow June 17 – June 26 at the ARCH 402 Gallery, Cremer Street, London E2 8HD.
