I’m Patrick Kramer, a hyper realistic painter originally from Kaysville, Utah. Working from photos, I paint whatever captures my interest, from still lives and portraits to city scenes or landscapes.

Being a perfectionist, I have always been considering art as an outlet for my slightly obsessive personality. I studied painting in college, and experimented with hyper realism as a way of perfecting my craft. I never intended to pursue the style, but found it hard to give up, as it suited my nature.

Painting full-time, a piece can take anywhere from 1 – 6 weeks (50 – 300 hours) which depends on the size and complexity.
