30 Hyperrealistic Art Pieces That Will Inspire You

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.

Diego Fazio

Diego Fazio is a self-taught hyperrealistic artist. He was born in 1989 in Lamezia, Italy. He also goes by the name DiegoKoi. In fact, he began drawing the Koi carp early in his career.

            Jason de Graaf

            Jason de Graaf explains that when he creates hyperrealistic art, he tries to tell a story, or “hint at something beyond what is actually painted.”

            He explains his technique of choosing subjects that have meaning to him or are objet d’art from his life. He intuitively chooses colors and composition with the objective of infusing his paintings with mystery and mood. Additionally he tries to remain open to new ideas as the painting unfolds.

                        Pedro Campos

                        Pedro Campos was born in Madrid in 1966. His hyperrealistic art is a clear reminder of the beauty and the detail of all things.

                        When creating his art, Campos chooses marbles, fruit, books, and soda cans as subjects for a variety of reasons. There is a complexity of these objects, which is hidden in daily life. He believes these objects possess and represent light and purity.

                        Pedro Campos formed the Official School of Conservation and Restoration of Works of Art in Madrid in 1988. He has worked in the restoration of paintings and other art forms in Spain, and as an illustrator for various international advertising agencies.

                                              Roberto Bernardi

                                              Roberto Bernardi started painting when he was very young. He was born in Todi, Italy on May 18, 1974. In the first half of the eighties, Bernardi completed his first hyperrealistic art pieces in oils. He was dedicated in learning all he could about pictorial techniques, which influenced his artistic arrangements significantly.

                                              In 1993, Bernardi moved to Rome and started restoration in the church of San Francesco a Ripa. He turned to hyperrealistic painting shortly afterwards.

                                              Roberto Bernardi’s paintings are found around the world in such places as New Zealand, Hong Kong, Canada, Greece, the United States, Belgium, Japan, Mexico, Germany, and England.

                                                        Ron Mueck is a sculptor based out of London, England. He is a former puppeteer and model maker for children’s’ films and television. Mueck also creates hyperrealistic art.

                                                        Mueck has been creating art sculptures since 1996. His technique entails sculpting in clay, making a plaster mold around a form, and then replacing the clay with a mixture of resin, silicone, and fiberglass.

                                                        Most of his work is comprised of sculpturing human-like figures, both large and small.

                                                              Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

                                                              Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

                                                              Are you a red wine drinker? What if I tell you sipping in a glass of wine can equate to an hour of exercise? Yup, it’s tried and tested. A new scientific study has just confirmed this wonderful news. So next time you hold a glass of Merlot, you can brag about one hour of hard workout. Rejoice, drinkers!

                                                              What the study found out

                                                              “I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for the more improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

                                                              (applauds)

                                                              Advertising

                                                              I’m not saying this, but the study’s principal investigator Jason Dyck who got it published in the Journal of Physiology in May.

                                                              In a statement to ScienceDaily, Dyck pointed out that resveratrol is your magic “natural compound” which lavishes you with the same benefits as you would earn from working out in the gym.

                                                              And where do you find it? Fruits, nuts and of course, red wine!

                                                              Advertising

                                                              Did I forget to mention Dyck also researched resveratrol can “enhance exercise training and performance”?

                                                              There are limits, of course

                                                              But, all is not gold as they say. If you’re a lady who likes to flaunt holding a glass of white wine in the club or simply a Chardonnay-lover,you have a bad (sad) news. The “one hour workout” formula only works with red wine, not non red wines. And don’t be mistaken and think you’ve managed 4 to 6 hours of workout sessions if you happen to gulp down a bottle of red wine.

                                                              And what can replace the golden lifetime benefits of exercise?Exercise is just as important as you age. Period! But hey, don’t be discouraged; look at the bigger picture here. A glass of red wine is not a bad deal after all!

                                                              The health benefits of red wine

                                                              But just how beneficial is the red alcoholic beverage to your body? As we all know red wine is a healthier choice youc an make when boozing.

                                                              Let’s hear it from a registered dietitian. Leah Kaufman lists red wine as the “most calorie friendly” alcoholic beverage. Sure, you won’t mind adding up to a mere 100 calories per 5-ounce glass of red wine after you realize it contains antioxidants, lowers risk of heart disease and stroke, reduces risk of diabetes-related diseases, helps avoid formation of blood clots and lowers bad cholesterol level.

                                                              Wantmore? Wine could also replace your mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in red wines can control the “bad bacteria” in your mouth.To add to that list of benefits, moderate wine drinking may be beneficial for your eyes too – a recent study mentions.

                                                              Be aware of the risks, too

                                                              Having mentioned all the ‘goods’ about red wine, you cannot underplay the fact that it is still an alcohol, which isn’t the best stuff to pour into your body. What is excessive drinking going to do to your body? Know the risks and you should be a good drinker at the end of the day.

                                                              However, you don’t want to discard the red vino from your “right eating”regimen just because it stains your teeth blue. M-o-d-e-r-a-t-i-o-n. Did you read that? That’s the operative word when it comes to booze.

                                                              By the way, when chocolate is paired with wine, particularly red, they can bring you some exceptional benefits towards your health.But again, if you tend to go overboard and booze down bottles after bottles, you are up for the negative side of alcohol, and we all know what too much of sweetness (sugar) can do to our body (open invitation to diabetes and heart diseases if you aren’t aware).

                                                              Folks, the red grape beverage is certainly a good buy to have a good hour’s worth of cardio, provided you keep the ‘M’ word in mind. Cheers!
