Photo-Realistic Portraits by Ruben Belloso

Ruben Belloso Adorna, 27 year-old artist from Seville, Spain creates amazing photorealistic drawings. The large-scale portraits are extremely detailed, perfectly express different emotions and surprisingly done using only pastel over the wooden canvas. Looking over and over again through these colorful paintings makes it really hard to believe they are not photographs and were made with the simplest tool – pastels. Hats off to the genius Ruben Belloso.

I am not a resin artist. I am a goldfish artist. I think it’s obvious which pieces are Riusuke Fukahori pieces because the imitators… Read more »

Stunning Photorealistic Paintings by Jason de Graaf

Don’t be mistaken, these are not photographs, in fact, they’re not even remotely related to anything digitally rendered. Canadian artist Jason de Graaf  has created these acrylic hyper realistic paintings from still photos. De Graaf told Poets & Artists magazine that his paintings are about creating the ‘illusion of verisimilitude’, filtered through his own vision of the world. “Though I use photographs as the image source, my goal is not to reproduce of document faithfully what I see, but to create an illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs,” he said. “Many of my paintings are about the… Read more »
