When you think of art it is easy to envision images far from reality and so creative that you are forced to stare and ponder what the artist was trying to express. Well, hyper-realistic paintings separate themselves from that expectation of detached reality. Hyper-realistic paintings look identical to high-resolution photographs because the artists use airbrushes with acrylics, oils or both to create intimate details that draw the audience in. These paintings are usually 10 to 20 times the size of the original photograph the artist used for reference. The painstaking amount of detail these artists are able to put into their work makes for such realistic painting that most viewers can’t decipher whether they are looking upon a painting or viewing a high-quality photograph. Check out 34 of the most impressively mind-boggling hyper-realistic paintingsĀ here.
