The art of cake

I take great delight in the work of Wayne Thiebaud; an American painter who paints heavenly visions of cakes, pies and pastries. 

His work is bold and colourful and was definitely a forerunner to pop art.

Many people wonder if his cakes and pastry portraits are due to a background in the food industry. When he was a young man, Wayne worked in a café named Mile End and Red Hot.  “Mile High” was an ice-cream and “Red Hot” was a hot dog. 

When asked by an art student “What do you think defines an artist?” he responded “An artist creates his own world.”
