Photorealism Art

Photorealism Art

From the name itself, a photorealist painting is one that looks as realistic as a photograph. This is done by taking a picture of the subject and then painting it. Photorealism is an art movement influenced by pop art, and it ran counter as a reaction to abstract expressionism. Unlike abstract art or conceptual art, photorealist painting has to be done by an artist who possesses advanced technical ability to capture the realism of the photograph onto canvas. Famous photorealist painters include Glennray Tutor, Robert Bechtle, Tom Blackwell, Don Eddy, and Cindy Wright, among others.
