2000年起,渡边理开始从事一种崭新的艺术类型,他利用制作食品样本的技术,将各种创作主题进行装饰,并将此表现风格定义为「伪奶油艺术」。他选择美术史中的古典作品作为题材,靠着独特的艺术手法,创造出有别于以往价值观的作品。除了具代表性的动物系列之外,另有名画和希腊雕像的系列、以全白的奶油呈现枯山水的系列,以及在世界遗产上进行装饰的作品系列等等。

由于渡边理的母亲曾在制菓学校担任讲师,因此甜点自小就充斥在他生活周遭,且与纪念日和生日等的幸福记忆紧密相连。这促使他在创作的过程中,联想到最贴近身边的甜点作为主题。其作品富有高度娱乐性,因此常获邀上电视节目、于百货公司中展示,或和动画及美体沙龙等企业进行合作等,广获引介至不同领域,还吸引了许多原本对艺术敬而远之者。对于这些活动,他本人曾在访谈中表示「就像不断增加的奶油一样,透过与各式 各样的媒体和企业进行合作,我得以实现将个人作品链接至各种 文化,并将它们拓展到全球舞台的计划。」

他的作品在国际舞台备受瞩目,除了日本之外,也在诸如中国、意大利、比利时、土耳其、美国、韩国等地举办个展。此外,作品更获大原美术馆(冈山县)与清须市春日美术馆(爱知县)收藏。
