You! Be Inspired! – Hyperrealistic Paintings by Pedro Campos

Inspiration March 5, 2013

If realism made you speechless, wait until you encounter hyperrealism. It is a genre of painting and sculpting involving an intricate resemblance of a high resolution photograph. The themes and subjects of most hyperrealistic paintings are portraits, still lifes, landscapes and narrative scenes. The term hyperrealism is primarily coined with an independent art movement and art style that has developed since the early 2000s in the US and Europe.

One amazingly talented  hyperrealist is Madrid based painter Pedro Campos. Most of his subjects like Coke cans, glass bottles and jars, and fruits wrapped in plastic sheets are painted with exact pictorial details. Huffington Post describes his work as having “an aura of glossy, and sanctified perfection about them”.
