Lanberg said, "I've done hundreds of pieces over the years, and something that started out as a hobby and something that really combined two of my passions of food and art has really grown into something that I could see myself doing for the rest of my life."
Having grown up in New York City, Langberg developed a lifelong appreciation for art as he was surrounded by numerous museums and galleries across the five boroughs and exposed to street art. Langberg's passion for the art form was further solidified during his student years when he took art history classes. He shared that he has a culinary background and has been interested in cooking since he was five years old. "I always tell people my parents are the worst cooks ever and I was so tired of takeout and delivery that I had to cook for my own survival," he said.
Lanberg started his food art after getting inspired by a food art photography exhibition and then never looked back. Now, as his Instagram bio aptly states, he is on a mission to turn "the edible into the unforgettable."
