Hyperrealism emerged in the early 2000’s as an evolution of the Photorealism movement. In contrast to modern abstract genres, it can be regarded as a return to the primal aim of faithfully replicating the real world. In these works we can discover echoes of ancient Greek art or Michelangelo’s formidable studies of the human body, textures and the interplay between light and darkness. Like its digital counterparts, some of the works incorporate new ingredients to create a new, alternative reality. On top of the formidable technical challenges, hyperrealistic artists manage to infuse their works with emotions and stories.
