First the concept, the theme, the tone, the atmosphere that will define the first perception of the work.
Then the light, the colours, the pigment that will impact our emotions.
Then the texture, the consistency that creates the right rhythm.
Then the intensity, the energy of the work that will determine its full power
And finally the details, the drop of ‘Je-ne-sais-quoi’ that makes the whole difference.
The artist has achieved his ‘oeuvre d’art’.

Mastering the art of creation is usually left to genius, the ones for whom a pencil has become a second hand and imagination a way of life. But times have changed. The right balance of colours, lights and texture isn’t exclusively reserved to the ‘protégé’ artists anymore.

The time has come to express our creativity, to let our feelings lead the way, to give our emotions the freedom that they have been looking for, to step away from the imposed choices, to finally decide and define what we want. The creation process is on its way… to Chop’d!

    • It is heaven for me as well! I really love the concept of chosing your own ingredient! There is always something that I don’t really fancy in a salad and the fact of having the choice of making your own is great!

  2. I love a great salad bar, especially when they have a great variety of ingredients to choose from. You can let your imagination run wild and create any salad you crave for
