Hyper-Realistic Paintings by Richard Estes

Posted on 29 May 2010 oddy88

I have always considered those painters who are trying to make their paintings look more realistic as a real artist. I am not a big fan of abstract paintings and artworks which are far away from reality. Richard Estes is painting artist from United States who makes great realistic paintings that look like real photos. Richard is born in 1932 in Kewane, Illinois and he has made a long career as an artist.

He is considered to be one of the founders of new photo-realist artistic movement which is also known as super-realism or hyper-realism. The painters who follow this movement are trying to paint as realistic paintings as they can and to provide us almost exact details of the environment which was the subject of their artworks, without any additions.
