In bold colors and loose strokes, Arsalan crafts pop culture-inspired comfort food portraits, using conventional materials like oil paint, acrylic canvas, translucent base and enamels, to put forward the visual lushness of the mediums used. These kinds of sugar-laden, fatty foods cause the brain to release certain neurotransmitters which induce the feeling of relaxation, pleasure and enjoyment in an individual. Hence, help increase the visual appeal of not only the item painted but the medium as well.
