Obviously, food art is common in places that sell food, particularly dine-in restaurants. The connection here is clear - the art reinforces the feelings that make eating such an enjoyable experience. It reminds us of the role that food plays in our lives and in our connections with others, and also of the many great memories that were created around a dinner table with family and friends. However, food art prints can also play a valuable role in decorating your office space or retail establishment, even if your business has nothing to do with food! The atmosphere of comfort and hospitality that food art helps to create can benefit an accountant or a car salesman just as it would a restaurant manager.

The type of food art you buy should fit the needs of the space you are decorating. If your kitchen has a sharp, modern feel, try adding a piece that matches it. A work like 'Chalkboard Green Beans' by Art Licensing Studio could be the perfect fit. The darker colors and high detail fit right in with a sleek, modern space. You also need to think about the size of the area you are going to cover. A small painting can really stand out as a nice addition to your wall, but it can also have the effect of making the space around it stand out or appear larger. Some food works of art look great without a frame, but you may want one either to protect the piece or to add some extra flare. Remember, the frame does have an impact on the overall appearance of the artwork, and they come in all shapes and sizes.
