40 Hyper Realistic Artworks That Are Hard to Believe Aren’t Photographs
Although sometimes art is meant to stress its detachment from the reality, hyperrealism practically erases this line. Pictures and sculptures, created by hyper realist artists, will look no different from a high resolution picture, making it hard to believe this was created using such regular tools as pencils or ballpoint pens.
Hyperrealistic images are typically 10 to 20 times the size of the original photographic reference source, yet retain an extremely high resolution in color, precision and detail. Many of the paintings are achieved with an airbrush, using acrylics, oils or a combination of both. 
We have already shown you some amazing examples of hyper realistic works, but here’s a selection of the most outstanding ones. We also included some photos of the creation process just to fully convince you these are not photographs. Which of these artists is your favorite?
