I’ve finally found it. The best oil painting of a grilled cheese sandwich ever
Twitter can be a grim place, with arguments, counter-arguments and counter-counter-arguments flying around left, right and centre. But it’s also filled with brilliant creative communities – and some truly tasty art.
An MFA artist has been sharing their work on the platform, and one particular piece seems to have got tastebuds tingling. That’s right – it’s a deliciously realistic oil painting of a grilled cheese sandwich that I’m actually quite angry not to be eating right now. (Want to paint your own?

Noah Verrier’s artwork (above) has attracted nearly half a million likes in two days, thanks to its brilliant blend of realism and a touch of impressionism – and just the right amount of melted cheese. As many have pointed out, the painterly quality adds an (appropriate) air of gravitas – this might be the only grilled cheese sandwich that belongs in the Louvre.

Gorgeous! Should be in the National Gallery. https://t.co/gXPkbXTI3VMarch 4, 2022
And if you like this, wait till you see the rest of Verrier’s oil paintings. From eggs to iced coffee, the artist clearly has a talent for painting delightfully tactile foodstuff. Check out some of our favourites below.
