Late in 2016 I was asked to draw this portrait series for Accademia del Panino Italiano in Milan, Italy.
The Italian Panino Academy is the Cultural Foundation created to define the identity and promote the unique qualities of the Italian Panino around the world, raising its status to that of an iconic “Made in Italy” product.
My task was to portrait six notable panino bakers and chefs. They are in order below: Arnaldo Cavallari, Massimo Grazioli, Davide Longoni, Eugenio Pol, Pasquale Polito and David Bedu.
The portraits were revealed on February 8th, 2017 and were featured in an exhibition.
