Varuna Sridhar from Chennai, an artist, posted a picture of a cup a coffee on social media in April. It was a reaction beyond her wildest dreams. Twitter users were confused as to whether she had uploaded a photo or a painting. The post received tens of thousand of likes, shares, and even celebrity endorsements.
After trying different styles, the 21 year-old artist now practices hyper-realism. This is a style where objects are rendered in an amazingly realistic manner. Her favorite subject is food, especially Tamil Nadu’s everyday food.
