Mao Momiji is a world famous food artist - well-known for creating lifelike and incredibly appetizing renderings of the most delicious dishes the world has to offer. He usually only works digitally, but for his first solo exhibition in the US he has created a special treat for his fans. For these Gallery Nucleus pieces, Mao Momiji has hand-embellished each piece with ink, making each one one-of-a-kind.
The [Special] pieces gently enhance the existing artwork with touches of metallic ink and shimmer. The [Deluxe] pieces feature even more detail, with gold, silver, and iridescent ink used throughout the piece. 
Unfortunately, due to shipping delays, the [Deluxe] pieces are delayed in transit. While both the [Deluxe] and [Special] pieces are both available for purchase, the [Deluxe] pieces will ship out to the buyers when they have arrived at the gallery after the exhibition has ended. Please email [email protected] with any questions or for more details. 


About Mao Momiji:

After his graduation from Musashino Art University’s oil painting program, Mao Momiji began exploring the depiction of light, texture, and cute characters in his art. He has since then pursued artistic development in multiple fields including advertising and writing, most notably collaborating with various renowned brands, including Wacom, PARCO, Adobe, Gakken, Seven-Eleven Japan. In 2019, he started updating his Instagram with food-themed illustrations every day. In 2022, it will be updated 1000 times in a row!
