Ben Schonzeit: Stariving Artist

Ben Schonzeit is a contemporary artist who paints realistic images of fruit, vegetables and baked goods. If you are interested in breaking your diet without all the carbs then check out his realistic paintings of bread, coffee and cupcakes. Schonzeit is a New York City based artist where he lives and works. His art is so realistic that you will questions your own sanity. The strawberries look like strawberries, and the snozzberries look like snozzberries. I chose this picture because as a hispanic I enjoy a good persimmon. I know it's a fruit grown in Asia but hispanic people will make anything thiers as long as it taste good.
