33 Hyper-Realistic Women In Magazine Poses With Their Flaws And Imperfections That Look Like Photographs

ADVERTISEMENT

Philipp Weber is a talented artist who paints realistic portraits of women in traditional magazine poses. The artist, who lives and works in Kassel and Berlin, Germany, looks for inner truth so instead of bringing empty perfection to life, he portraits their minor imperfections and their deep human stories—whether that be the sadness in their eyes or wounds on their faces.

Weber’s artistic journey began when he was just a 3-year-old boy and since then, he hasn’t lost his path. Through the years, you can see a clear artistic progression in his works. His inspiration comes from books, movies, fellow artists, other creative people, and people’s personal stories about their lives: the stories that reveal their dreams and aspirations that are beyond fancy faces and flawless skin.

“Philipp started painting when he was 3 years old as a present to give his mum and grandmother to make them happy and smile. He says that he cannot imagine his life without painting. When he was a high school student, he painted portraits that he sold to people directly and made enough money to buy a small car,” says Philipp’s business manager Kiki Kim to Bored Panda.

“Philipp studied his Master’s degree at Berlin University of the Arts and he has always been interested in realistic or super-realistic art, regardless of what stage of his career he has been in, as he believes that his viewers can engage with his paintings the best with a super-realistic art form.”

I take photographs that look amazingly like hyper-realistic paintings. It’s a lot less work.

I understand the technical skill involved here, but I don't understand some artists (and many non-artists) obsession with photorealism in fine art. Painting, drawing, sculpture, etc. can express so much more than just copying photography. Also...Maybe apply those mad skills to painting something you cannot photograph, and something other than stereotypically beautiful women...

If I could paint that well I would paint things that you couldn't see in real life. Like the things from dreams, I could paint myself or other people with wings or just make beautiful creatures that don't exist. That is real art.
