Hyper Realism seems to be a growing area of art these days, but no work compares to the father of Hyper Realism Sculpture, Duane Hanson. Hanson’s work went beyond replicating the human form by creating vulnerable scenes of sloth and gluttony, showcasing mundane citizens chasing the American Dream.
Natalia Fabia is a Polish/American artist, raised and living in California. Her sultry oil paintings often reflect dark, but sparkly real life surroundings adorned with tattooed beauties and fish-net hookers. With an outstanding talent which seems to be reaching towards hyperrealism in some of her images, Fabia’s work is shocking, bright and original. Currently blowing up everywhere and exhibiting in New York until mid-February.

Valerio Carrubba is a hyperrealist painter. His images are anatomically accurate, showing his peaceful patients with their internal organs exposed. Shocking, realistic and, at the same time, extremely surreal, Valerio’s paintings are technically beautiful and provocative.
