Lee Price is a painter who creates super photorealistic self-portraits that touch a very fragile topic – woman’s relationship with food.
The paintings show her and food in intimate and private settings. The pictures of the painter, getting excessive with food that is considered indulgent, forbidden, or comforting. Her works addresses the intersections of food with body image, addiction, and unabating desire. I am caffeinated by the artist, who is brave enough to “talk about” this sensitive subject.
Lee Price a caffeinated woman!

According to the one and only Pablo P. caffeinatedmum would like to introduce you one by one her favourite artists …. kicking off with a serie of artists, who represent the modern art style, “hyperrealism”, that has developed since the early 2000s. “Hyperrealism” is a genre of painting and sculpture resembling a high-resolution photograph. “Hyperrealism” is considered an advancement of photorealism by the methods used to create the resulting paintings or sculptures.

Today I would like to introduce the realistic artwork of Spanish artist Josep Moncada Juaneda. The first painting has become one of my all time favourites.
How caffeinating are his paintings?★
Josep Moncada Juaneda was born in Mahon, Menorca in 1967 and trained as a painter at the Massana and Llotja Schools of Art in Barcelona under Rafel Jofre and Isidre Manils. He has participated in group exhibitions in Barcelona, Madrid, Menorca and Mallorca, earning first prize at the Festes St. Bartomeu, Ferreries (2001) and was voted ‘favourite artist’ at the Premi St. Antoni, Menorca (2003), when he was also awarded a scholarship by the Talens España.
I have recently discovered the wonderful work of illustrator Liz Climo. She has a whole book of hilarious animal comics! From killer whales to porcupines, dinosaurs to polar bears, Climo attributes a delightful simple sense of humour to all her animal characters. Her first book The little World of Liz Climo, features hundreds of illustrations from her Tumblr page as well as fifty other comics. It just so happens that Climo is friends with Brian Konletzko co-creator of Avatar: The Last Air Bender, who writes in the foreword of Clime’s book that her drawings have “no wasted lines, no extraneous background elements, only what is need to tell the joke, pure and simple”.★
Now, Liz Climo has just released a brand-new book titled Lobster Is the Best Medicine! Climo, who is popular for her charmingly witty comics starring a quirky assortment of talking creatures, has expanded her animal kingdom in her latest collection of illustrations. Lobster Is the Best Medicine contains 25 of Climo’s web comics and 75 never-before-seen cartoons devoted to the theme of friendship. Filled with funny tales about everyday life drawn in the artist’s adorable style, the book is a guaranteed fun for friends & family.★

One of my favourite contemporary artists is Hope Gangloff. Hope Gangloff (born in Amityville, New York) is an American painter living and working in New York City. She studied Art at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. Gangloff has exhibited nationally and internationally, with solo shows at the Broad Art Museum in East Lansing, Michigan; the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield; and galleries both in the US and Europe.
Gangloff is a great painter of hands and faces; rendered in dashing brushwork, they always appear full of expressive weight. Her other major talent is for articulating patterns in thin, fastidious lines, enabling her to paint clothing and textiles with incredible finesse. The techniques encourage comparisons between Gangloff ‘s figures and those of the Austrian portraitists Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele.
If it’s fun you like, I highly recommend checking out her full range of artwork over on her website http://www.hopegangloff.com/drawings.html.
