Twitter can be a grim place, with arguments, counter-arguments and counter-counter-arguments flying around left, right and centre. But it's also filled with brilliant creative communities - and some truly tasty art.

An MFA artist has been sharing their work on the platform, and one particular piece seems to have got tastebuds tingling. That's right - it's a deliciously realistic oil painting of a grilled cheese sandwich that I'm actually quite angry not to be eating right now. (Want to paint your own?

Noah Verrier's artwork (above) has attracted nearly half a million likes in two days, thanks to its brilliant blend of realism and a touch of impressionism - and just the right amount of melted cheese. As many have pointed out, the painterly quality adds an (appropriate) air of gravitas - this might be the only grilled cheese sandwich that belongs in the Louvre.
