    What is your opinion on hyperrealism?

    I've seen realistic paintings before, but not quite like these

    So realistic that it looks like he doesn't compensate for the perspective distortion that his camera creates?

    Well noticed. That about sums most of "hyperrealism" up.

    bleugh. the only interest in these would be in the photo as well, and they're not very interesting photos.

    I've never understood the point of it to be honest. It's not nice to look at, and it's not artistic in the least. Slavishly copying every detail, adding no personal touch at all. Bleh. Just my opinion!

    They leave the same impression the photos would leave on me. Not much of one.

    I find hyper-realism more interesting when not done after photos, but after life - like this cut-up melon.

    http://jeremygeddesart.blogspot.com/ is it hyper-real ? dont know, but if the artist want to do a great piece using his abstraction power to do something more than a just copy.. wow its great, its about control and how you understand the world, your eyes and etc..

    I had a professor at a community college who was a photo realistic painter. The detail was astounding. Various sizes, but he did seem to have the same bland taste in the subject matter. Like one was a gas pump.

    Although he did shift around the hue in some of them while keeping it realistic.


    Eh you don't get the feel as well through the internet. Seeing a giant canvas over 6 ft tall where it's still hard to distinguish it being done with brush strokes I found astounding.
