New York-based Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri has created a series of paintings called ‘women in nature’, that are so perfect in their composition and mastery in almost every sense of the word, that you’d be very forgiven for believing that they are photos.
I’m finding it very hard to believe myself – brushstrokes? Where?
Revealed in his Bio,: Thousands of tiny brushstrokes animate his lifelike paintings, giving way to a remarkable realism, distinct beauty, and seductive power.
Ozeri has shown extensively around the world, including solo exhibits in Bologna, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Toronto, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, France, Denmark, and Munich.
His work is included on the cover and in the book ‘Photorealism and the Digital Age’.
He is currently in a traveling show titled 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting that was showcased in a number of venues including: Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, and Museo de Bellas Artes in Bilbao.
You can see more of his work at his website.
