Foodie Fever and its artworks address the variety of issues germane to the food craze phenomenon seen in the millennial generation’s sharing of foodie photographs on social media. Having the greatest buying power millennial foodies search for the rarest, most authentic, custom-made, unusual cuisines sometimes laced with Cannabidiol (CBD). Millennial foodies seek trendy diets, the most popular of which are the low-carb or gluten-free, eschewing inhumane farming methods while seeking alternatives. This sector also appreciates individuality and mash-ups, fusions or foods created especially for their tastes like poke bowls and other exotic tastes. Regardless of what they choose Millennials are mindful of their food-sources and careful with their health.
