The Hyper Surrealistic Art of Gianluca Gambino

Hyper realism isn’t my thing. Sometimes, you need an illustration of a shoe to look like a shoe, or an automobile to look like an automobile. Probably because I could never pull it off, and it just leaves me cold, but if you are going to give me hyper realism, give me surreal hyper realism.

Gianluca Gambino, the Art of Tenia does just that, the technique is flawless but with personality. I am hyper terrible at art history, but it seems to me to mash¬†up the hyper realism,¬†neoclassicism and surrealist movements…who am I kidding? Those eyes man! I am entranced by the milky white eyes. More here and here.

    I would say just ‘surrealist’, without the ‘hyper’. Amazing, though.

    This is not, digital painting.
    These are photo manipulations.
    I would be pleased to see a work in progress of this fake artist.
    In the web there is nothing.
