These Are Not Photos – They Are Paintings – Hyperrealism Part 2

It’s really hard to understand that these images by Jason de Graaf are not photos; they are paintings. I have previously made some posts within the same area – Hyperrealism, about Paul Cadden and I think that Jason is as talented.

Hyperrealism – These are NOT pictures, they are drawings

Today I was introduced to a new form of art, Hyperrealism. To be frank I still find it hard to understand that these are drawings and not pictures. Among the most impressive things I’ve seen…

“Hyperrealism was born from the idea of photorealism, which are paintings based on photographs but created in a non-photographic medium.

Taking an average of between three and six weeks to produce, Cadden creates about seven pieces each year – which usually come in A1 or A0 sizes – and sell at galleries for up to £5,000 each.”
