30 Hyperrealistic Art Pieces That Will Inspire You


Hyperrealistic art is a type of sculpture or painting that looks a lot like a high-resolution photograph.

Hyperrealism initially started in the early part of the 21st century as an independent art movement and style in Europe and the United States. It is considered an advancement of Photorealism. However, unlike Photorealism, hyperrealist sculptors and painters use photographs as a source of reference as they try to create a more detailed rendition, which exhibits emotions and tells a story.

Hyperrealistic art often entails a softer, much more complex focus on a subject. Hyperrealist artists center much of their attention on emphasizing the details of a particular item, presenting it as a living, tangible object.

These objects and scenes are meticulously detailed to create the illusion of a reality not seen in the original photo. Here is a list of 30 hyperrealistic art pieces by talented artists that have motivated many and may inspire you, as well.
