Rather than landscapes or portraits, these painters are featuring food as the subject of their creations. These tantalising paintings have become very popular in the recent past and have sent the internet into a collective meltdown. And this time was no different! Recently, an oil and digital painter, Alai Ganuza, took to Twitter to share a painting of sunny side up eggs. The amazing painting left the internet mesmerised and went viral for all the right reasons. Take a look:
