Artist Creates Hyperrealistic Paintings Of Fish, Insects, Reptiles And Snails

Meet Young-sung Kim, the extraordinary artist from Seoul, Korea, that is about to take your senses on a magic ride! Kim creates insane hyperrealistic pictures that look way too real for the mind to even comprehend that it's just a painting! 

His paintings, oil on canvas, look more realistic than actual photographs!

The Insider interviewed Kim on his process of what he calls, "an advanced, extreme hyperrealism that precedes any reality — more real than photographs and high-definition monitors." 

He continued describing the process and how planning each new piece involves, "collecting small animals, taking photographs, preparing a canvas, sketching, drawing, and painting with small brushes."

Kim also informed the Insider that he works 12 hours per day on creating these masterpieces.It can take anywhere from 3 to 10 months to complete one painting. 

Since Kim was a small child, he's been "collecting, observing, and studying .. I was amazed at the detail and the subtle colors that I saw in my work, just as I looked through a microscope." 

Why hyperrealism? Kim explains, "I have chosen my genre as hyperrealism because people in today's society think of animals and nature as methods of ornament, experiment, and edibility, My genre may be able to make the people think twice about the unintentionally abusive nature of their behavior towards animals and nature."

"Let's take care of small animals," Kim said. "If they cannot live, humans cannot live either."

We completely agree, Kim! Keep creating and loving life!

Yikes! One couple in Tuolumne County, California, had quite a wild day! Edward and wife Kathy Sudduth were watching TV when they heard a loud bang from within their home. The couple believe the home invader was after their neighbor's cat, who found shelter but the more dangerous cat was still there -- in their living room. 

According to FOX40, The mountain lion actually ran into Kathy, and it took her a moment to realize what had just happened. 

"We thought it was a dog," Kathy told FOX40.

"His tail was pretty close to me so I just 'thwipped' it a little bit like that," Edward added. 

The noise and touch the couples made sent the invader running into the bathroom, where it locked itself inside! 

Edward and Kathy barricaded themselves in a room and immediately dialed 911 for some assistance. 

The Department of Fish and Wildlife and Tuolumne County (DFW) sheriff's deputies came to help out. 

And with permission from the Sudduth's, the deputies broke the bathroom window and watched as the mountain lion leaped out. 

And while this is definitely quite the experience for the Sudduth's, they would prefer to keep it a memory. Edward jokes, "Won't leave the door open anymore."
