Some artists possess abilities which break all the boundaries of what we thought was possible. Whether they use oil or acrylic paints, charcoal, ball point pens or just a plain pencil, they can produce still life images which are literally impossible to distinguish from photographs. With their persistence and talent, these artists can craete something that’s far more impressive than a simple photocopy — instead, they’re can be a real window into an alternative world, shaped by the vision of the artist.
Here are 15 such artists. Looking at their work, you just can’t believe your eyes!
Diego works like an ink-jet printer, starting his drawing from one side of the page and moving steadily across it. He works with a simple pencil and charcoal. It takes him around 200 hours to complete one composition.
Gregory Thielker creates his ’rainy’ images using watercolours and oil paints smeared with his fists. Looking at his paintings, you’re reminded of traveling in a car on a cold wet day.
