Media Advisory Christopher M. Presents a Four Course “Feast for the Eyes”
Follow the “Painter of Chefs” as he emulates the world’s greatest chefs on canvas, course by course.
SAN DIEGO— You know the top chefs: Thomas Keller, Charlie Trotter, Gavin Kaysen, Francois Payard. On February 4-5, Exclusive Collections Galleries will be honored to host the “Painter of Chefs” Christopher M. in a special food and wine pairing that recreates the artist’s images course by course with culinary tastings catered by Mandy Braidic of The Inspired Gourmet.
Because Christopher M. visits the tables of the greatest chefs of our time, he recognizes the consistent parallel between the culinary arts and his own profession in fine art. With unrelenting attention to the details of taste and technique, superior respect for subject matter, and the flourish of dramatic presentation, both chefs and painters are not only artists, but performers. In this upcoming show, Christopher M. plans to emphasize the impact that the culinary arts make in contemporary society and how chefs have risen to celebrity status for their knowledge, craftsmanship, and intrigue.
“The reputations of the chefs I’m working with are truly staggering, and that feels amazing knowing that such a lofty goal of mine has become a reality. One of my greatest accomplishments so far, that I also find very humbling, is that I’ve been able to translate a modern and contemporary aspect of life into a medium that can join the continuity of art history. But to me it’s only the beginning… I know that the future will reveal so much more.” – Christopher M.
