Move over, Picasso! Your squiggly lines and cubism are being cast aside. It’s time for a new era: photorealism. Okay, we’re just joking. Obviously Picasso isn’t going anywhere, and neither is abstract art. But, we do want to introduce you to a genre of art that wows and wonders with how true-to-life it looks. As fun as abstract art is, there’s nothing like some photo-realism to amaze and enchant. So sit back, relax and get ready to step into a world of confusingly realistic paintings.
It can be incredible to see a painting vivid and clear enough that it can almost be mistaken for a photograph. Creating something like this requires a mammoth amount of detail. Every single hair has to be in place, but at the same time, nothing can look too perfect. It’s quite a challenge to create all of the different textures life can produce.
Despite this difficult task, artists still create amazing works of photo-realistic art and this style of painting can be a breathtaking way to transform your space. Watch as guests enter your home and pause. Is that a picture or a photograph? Photo-realism is a great alternative to photography and can give your home the flair that only a painting can provide. Photorealism is the perfect match for those who find abstract art a little chaotic, and would prefer something more grounded in technique.
