The selected theme for May Theme Day this time it could be very delicious: Let's Eat.
For MurciaDailyPhoto has been lucky that right now, you can see in MUBAM "Gastroarte 2", a sample that mixes gastronomy with art. Master pastry chef Paco Torreblanca has chosen four paintings from different periods that are exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts in Murcia (MUBAM), and he has reinterpreted them in pieces of "goldsmith".
The exhibition began on April 27 and lasts until June 18.
The pastry artist has used cake, caramel stands, mousse and chocolate figures, vanilla cream, cheese and apricot, blown sugar balls and crisp praline, among others.
All the works of pastry are exposed next to the pictorial work on which it has been based.
Image: pictorial work: Saint Michael Archangel by Juan de Juanes (16th century).
            pastry work by Paco Torreblanca, Master pastry chef, wanted to highlight the wings of the archangel. Everything is sugar (the wings). The blue base is also made of sugar and, in the first term, a half sphere of white chocolate sponge cake. So, everything you can eat.
