Họa sĩ Roberto Bernardi, sinh năm 1974, người Italy đã tạo ra nhiều tác phẩm nghệ thuật khiến người xem khó có thể nhận ra chúng là hình được thực hiện bằng tay.
Roberto học vẽ từ nhỏ. Đến năm 1993, anh chuyển đến Rome và bắt đầu sự nghiệp vẽ tranh siêu thực Photorealism.
Photorealism cho phép chụp ảnh trước để lấy mẫu rồi dựa vào đó để tạo ra những tác phẩm giống hệt bên ngoài cuộc sống.
Telephone Booths (1968), Oil on canvas. Example of photorealist Richard Estes work. Richard Estes is considered to be the leading artist of the movement.
Paul Lung – an Hong Kong graphic artist who will spend on average a solid 60 hours on each sketch to achieve his terrifying level of photorealistic art. His work is rather like that of Juan Francisco Casas who also draws everything to high degree of realism (although personally not quite as much as Paul) and in ballpoint pen rather than Paul who tools himself with nothing more than a 0.5mm technical pencil to do the job, drawing anything and everything, from his family and friends to cats. His highly detailed work has been written about in newspapers like The Sun and Telegraph. See more of his hyperreal art at www.paullung.deviantart.com.
Here's a video showcasing his work…
Stephen Shub is another amazing hyperreal artist, here's what he has to say… "I don't have a resume of prestigious awards I've won or one-man gallery shows. What I do have, is a portfolio of work that was created under the most difficult conditions of my 59 years. I'm proud of my work. It's the culmination of everything I've ever learned, and I can honestly say that it's a true reflection of who I am."
Doug Bloodworth – www.dougbloodworth.com – is a self-confessed Western Art nut, I mean that as in the Old West, cowboys and indians, as opposed to the Western hemisphere. Anyhow fortunately he also has a love for Pop Art and ultra realistic paintings. Check these out:
Diego Gravinese is another hyperrealist with an incredible knack for realistic and ultra detailed paintings. His site isn't really ready yet but there's plenty more to see at his Flickr page.
