Hyperrealistic Paintings

Hyperrealistic Paintings on Artzyme.

Hyperrealistic Paintings are genre of painting resembling a high-resolution photograph. Hyperreal paintings are not strict interpretations of photographs, nor are they literal illustrations of a particular scene or subject. Instead, they utilize additional, often subtle, pictorial elements to create the illusion of a reality which in fact either does not exist or cannot be seen by the human eye. Furthermore, Hyperrealistic Paintings may incorporate emotional, social, cultural and political thematic elements. Subject matter ranges from portraits, figurative art, still life, landscapes, cityscapes and narrative scenes. Many of the paintings are achieved with an airbrush, using acrylics, oils or a combination of both.
