Hyper-Realistic Reflections: Paintings from Jason de Graaf

Saturday 01.04.2014 , Posted by
Jason de Graaf Hyper Realistic Reflective Paintings 1

To see one of Jason de Graaf’s paintings is to be tricked into believing they are real. His hyper-realistic worlds are painstaking illusions, created with his delicate brush strokes and resulting in the appearance of a high definition photograph. Much of his work revolves around reflection: from shiny metal orbs, to polished crystal skulls; each of his images is unbelievably real. [Read more...]

Karla Mialynne hyper realistic illustrations_10

You have to get pretty close to Karla Mialynne’s work before you realize it isn’t real. To create her illustrations – which mostly feature animals like pugs and owls – she uses Prismacolor pencils, Pantone Tria markers and occasionally, acrylic paint. After each piece is complete, she photographs it with the array of tools she used to create it. How interesting to see all the colors involved! [Read more...]

Intricately Detailed Pen & Ink Drawings of Animals by Tim Jeffs

1 Tim Jeffs Animal Drawings

With nothing more than a sketchbook and a whole bunch of uniball-power tank pens, Tim Jeffs spends 12 to 16 hours creating amazingly detailed animal portraits. The pen and ink illustrations are incredibly hyper-realistic and it’s hard to believe that the rich, black backgrounds are also created by saturated ink. Aside from being a husband to his devoted wife Jane, father to Jenna and Harrison, Creative Director in NYC, and an exceptional illustrator, Tim Jeffs was a founding member of White Zombie. His roommate at Parsons School of Design, where he graduated with a degree in illustration in the 1987, was none other than Rob Zombie and Jeffs was one of the band’s first guitarists!

Hyper Realistic Paintings 1

Even with a seriously close inspection, it’s hard to believe that these artworks from Robin Eley aren’t high quality photographs. Each and every detail speaks of reality, from beautifully rendered hair to the glisten in his subject’s eyes. His luminous skin tones contrast with the transparent hues of the cellophane plastic that often folds around their bodies… and it’s all rendered in just oil paint on Belgian linen. [Read more...]

James Rieck paintings 2013 1

James Rieck has made a name for himself over the past years by drawing us in to explore his hyper-real portraits – images that at once seem like snapshots of real people and simultaneously make us questions our presumptions with their too perfect colors and tones. It’s like those moments after a convincing dream when you have to think: “did that really happen?” Now Rieck has released new works based on a recent uprooting from his long-time residence and studio in Baltimore, Maryland and his subsequent move to expansive and seemingly infinite Los Angeles, California. As he puts it, his new paintings are themed around “self-imposed dislocation.” [Read more...]
