I started making pasta portraits because it was for a school project. I was having my on-the-job training when I thought of drawing local celebrities using media/items that are connected to their line of food business. I used pasta noodles and spaghetti sauce/ketchup to come up with these edible portrait drawings. Each food art took me around 3-4 hours to complete.

After posting my food art online, people started sharing them and got viral. I also had the opportunity to be featured in ABS-CBN, one of the biggest television networks in the Philippines. My food art appeared in the show, “Matanglawin” where I got interviewed on how I created the pasta portraits and even got to meet two of the celebrities I drew (Kathryn Bernardo and Kim Atienza). On a different event, I met another celebrity whom I made a pasta portrait too (Liza Soberano).

Food art is very new to me since I originally use coloured pencils and graphite as my main media in drawing. But I’ll definitely continue doing pasta portraits because they’re fun to make and it’s such a unique idea.
