Cheese: Paintings by Mike Geno
Mike Geno paints food. He has recently gained some media attention for his paintings of cheese from around the world, which he started in 2011, after buying a wedge from a local cheese shop.
When I received a gift card for a beloved local cheese shop (Di Bruno Brothers), I spent it all on a hefty wedge of Gorwydd Caerphilly with no knowledge of cheese at all. The texture and color was so beautifully cake-like, I found the greatest urge to paint it when I opened it up at home. That was my initiation to this incredible world of cheese.
