Hyperrealism - paintings by contemporary artists in the online gallery
The plots of hyperrealism are based on the aesthetic principles of photorealism, which are often indistinguishable from reality, but, unlike the latter, it does not set itself the goal of copying everyday reality. The author, while remaining essentially in a photographic role, has a different attitude to the subject of the image, presenting it as a living, material object. Scenes and plots in hyperrealistic painting are as detailed as possible, which creates the illusion of reality. Textures, surfaces, lighting effects and shadows in the works of hyperrealists are always clear and distinguishable, sometimes even stronger than in photography. In the interior of a bedroom or kitchen, hyperrealistic oil paintings on canvas create an unusual illusion of photomontage for the viewer, while concealing a deep thought inherent in the work of the artist.
