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!

Goregous Paintings of Spirit Animals Wandering Through Colorful Landscapes

Artist Gill Bustamante who is based in Sussex, England, is the creator of large-scale, ethereal landscape oil paintings. Working with a vibrant color palette, she described her style as "a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I'm in that day." Sounds like a true artist. 

So, what inspires her? "...the patterns of nature and the energy, colors, and spaces of the landscapes and animals" that are around her. And wow, are we glad that is what gives her the inspiration for such gorgeous paintings! 

If you're amazed by Bustamante's paintings, then make sure to check her out on Etsy and Saatchi Art.
