15 Unbelievable Paintings That Look Like Photographs

artist pedro campos 15 Unbelievable Paintings That Look Like Photographs

 

Pedro Campos (46), is an incredible hyperrealist painter from Madrid, Spain. Using oil paints he recreates incredibly realistic still life shots that many might mistake for a photograph. He’s worked in a variety of creative fields from interior decorating, illustration (at an ad agency), to art restoration on furnishings, paintings and sculptures. He actually didn’t even begin oil painting until the age of 30.

Campos attributes his work in restoration to honing his craft in precision, stating: “I think the influence of restoration in developing my own way of painting has been important. The restoration of lost areas in antique paintings forces you to seek excatitude in color: any personal intervention should go unnoticed.”

While many compare Campos to other realist masters, he proclaims his artistic admiration for artists such as: Lucien Freud, Richard Estes, Francis Bacon, Antonio López, and Anish Kapoor, for their quality of “distinction” in their works. [Source: Huffington Post]
