Although Ludvic is best known for creating abstract paintings and steel sculptures, he started painting food subject about five years ago. The works reflect a Mediterranean style of painting from the seventeenth century and have often been compared to masters such as Chardin and Zurbaran. His food paintings have been shown at The James Beard Foundation and The Gourmet Institute at Gourmet Magazine headquarters, both in NYC. "My wife and I often laugh because I started painting these works when I went on a low-carb diet. I guess if I couldn't eat the foods I loved, then I had to paint them. So I started by painting breads. On a more serious note, I find great comfort in creating these works, They are my offering -- a symbol of sustenance -- to the altar of life"
