If you are an avid social media user, you may have come across unique talents from different walks of life on a daily basis. Recently, a Chennai-based artist-photographer rose to fame after her painting of a cup of filtered coffee was praised for its realism as it looked like a live photograph. While netizens are still recovering from the buzz created by Chennai artist Varuna’s ‘drip coffee’ painting, she has managed to raise the bar even higher after sharing her work on a packet of Maggi Noodles online. His drawing of Maggi, apparently one of his earliest works, once again met with praise for the realistic features and the spreading of the word, and eventually the brand itself was blown away and responded.

Chennai-based artist and photographer Varuna Shreethar has taken microblogging giant Twitter by storm after sharing a painting of a packet of Maggi noodles. The painting featured the characteristic yellow packaging of the Nestlé product, while a bowl of noodles inside the packaging bears a strong resemblance to the ones we have at home. “My old Maggi painting,” Varuna wrote in the caption while sharing the photo.

Earlier, Varuna Shreethar shared a filter coffee painting that looked so realistic that it left Twitterati in awe. The photo had gone viral and racked up over 58,000 likes. However, as her recent painting went viral, Maggi India also noticed her and joined in the conversation. “This photo surely took our ‘Dil’ (heart),” the food company wrote, adding “keep showing the #maggilove,” the brand commented.

Netizens Call Chennai Artist’s ‘Maggi’ Painting Fascinating

Like Varuna’s previous works, his painting of Maggi Noodles initially left netizens wondering if it was a work of art or a photograph. “Wow! Hyper-realistic!!” wrote one user. The second user wrote, “This is just mind blowing. I followed you for your handle name but I’m glad I did. The drip coffee painting was just a masterpiece. Keep it up. Cheers.” The third user wrote, “Still can’t believe this is a painting, OMG!”
