Tomoni Shintaku’s concept of food rationing is unique. His artworks are stunningly and beautifully original. Using food as the main object of his paintings, he showcases the issues that people face in this modern life.
Colour Me Well puts together a combination of colours and patterns in three series. Tomoni Shintaku presents his idea of food through patterns, playing around the idea of how food is not just a daily necessity in this modern day. His use of bright colours seems to encapsulate this idea as it magnifies the frivolousness of the food items presented, such as cakes which is considered a luxurious food. The repetition seems to suggest that people in this modern society take for granted the value of food even though eating is necessary for survival.
