The kitchen is the centerpiece of almost any food lover’s house. It’s where all the excitement of creating food comes from, as well as the joy of eating it. Most people spend a good portion of their day in the kitchen, making the food that makes them happiest. The average person spends anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes out of every day in the kitchen, making food. So it makes perfect sense to decorate that home space with artwork that will encourage and inspire the creator of the food, whether you’re making a culinary masterpiece or warming up its leftovers the day after.
Almost every person has a different aesthetic that they’re going for in their kitchen. Whether you love a clean and bright kitchen, a rustic and warm place to make your meals, or someplace to remind you of the world outside your kitchen, Canvas Cultures has beautifully designed artwork to appease anyone’s tastes. Here are a few selections from our curated collection of independently created artwork that you can buy on our website.

Great Ramen Wave, by Vincent Trinidad

Either way, ramen noodles are one of the most familiar and iconic meals in the world, whether you’re a poor college student or someone who’s looking for the best meal they can get.

True Love, by Robert Jacobs
Pizza. The most beloved food in the world, by some people’s estimations. It’s the food that never fails and will always be there for you when you need it most. Some people like it as hot as possible, while others prefer it cold for breakfast the next day. It’s arguably the most versatile food in the world and the most variable. Almost everyone has a unique selection of toppings they prefer, whether it’s meat lovers, pineapple and pepperoni, or cheese, cheese, and more cheese. Pizza is one of the most beloved and revered foods in the world.
More than just being a great food to order in a pinch, pizza is one of the greatest foods to make on your own. It’s a fairly simple recipe, where all the magic comes together through the uniqueness of the maker. No pizza will be exactly the same twice: the ingredients will fall in different places, there’ll be a little extra cheese, and the slices might be slightly different sizes. But rather than being mistakes, these peculiarities are what makes pizza so special.
This canvas design on our website by the massively talented artist Robert Jacobs is a testament to the legendary legacy that pizza has. The concept of true love is well represented by this photo. It’s a pepperoni pizza—perhaps the most classic and recognizable topping that pizza is known for.
And the concept of true love is well displayed through pizza; it’s always there for you, it’ll always satisfy the cravings you have, and it’s always going to be just what you need. This illustration of real true love can fit well in any kitchen, large or small.
Blue Lagoon, by Jarod Farver
Abstract art is one of the centerpieces of luxury. It shows a high sense of taste and understanding of beauty and can help serve as an inspiration to people who understand the purposes and meaning behind abstract art.
A fascinating way that abstract art and food can link is through synesthesia, a phenomenon that occurs in some people’s brains. It’s the linkage between different senses, which means that when some people experience a sense like taste or touch, they also experience a linked sensation of sight or sound. There are infinite possibilities to how they might experience the different sensations, but when it comes to eating, there are some people in the world who might experience abstract colors as they experience food.
This particular piece by brilliant artist Jacob Farver is an excellent example of modern abstract art. The way that they structured the colors, shapes, and textures of the art piece shows a true mastery of the medium, and shows how a well-made abstract piece of art can truly change the feeling of a room. The brilliant shades of blue and white throughout this piece can bring endless amounts of color and vitality to anyone’s kitchen, so check it out and think about how it could fit in yours.
Food Definition, by Robert Jacobs
Even though everyone knows what food is, sometimes it fits the aesthetic of the room to remind yourself as you’re making it. If you think about it, food is really one of the most complex and variable things in the world, and so reminding yourself what it really is as you’re making it could only serve to help you. Not to mention the fact that food has a special way into almost every person’s soul in one way or another.
While some people just eat to live, others live to eat. That’s a common mentality in the world, and it lives especially in the minds of those who love to create food for themselves and others. It’s the mindset of a truly passionate and driven chef, and it’s something that even the average home cook can take for themselves.
This other incredible design by the brilliant artist and creator Robert Jacobs is a great way to remind yourself of the nearly magical and soul-changing qualities of good food. It’s something we all crave and long for, and the better the food is, the better our lives will be. Reminding yourself daily of the beautiful and enriching qualities of food is something that very well might change your life for the better. Check out this piece on our website, and see if it’ll fit in your kitchen!
