      haha! i thought these are all photos until i read your comment.. i thougt so, kind of worried by the way because some of the locations are not the best to make an open fire 😀

    93heb9rb32!!! what on earth?!!!!! these are INSANE!!! I love them so much. Gorgeous work.

  • sofia

    these are amazing, yet i always wonder with this kind of work – why painting, and not photography? these are obviously painted FROM photographs…how does the paint itself work towards the piece in terms of its subject matter? Is the artist just showing off and paintings make more than photographs?

  • OMAR.

    I think that, the artist is able to capture with paint, something the camera wont be able to, Besides his admiration of the photograph itself?

    pretty insane stuff either way.

    it’s not perfect realism, but that fire just has something..

    ooh awesome. there’s definitely a quality that won’t carry over in a photograph. love #’s 1 & 5 and the orange creeping up into the sky on the last one.

    These are really well done. I love the colours. I will get flamed for this (uh-oh..no pun intended)but I can’t help think Lord Of The Rings…I know!! I’m sorry…

    Great work and what devotion to spend that much time rendering them so much.

    These are amazing. Burning furniture is a major part of my life and this captures the beauty of it perfectly. I would love to see some night ones though.

    The fact that these are paintings and not photographs is unbelievable. They look to realistic. Amazing!

    I agree with Sofia. These are amazingly realistic, for sure, but I think I would really love them even if they were “just” photographs. I’m sure the artist has his reasons for painting as opposed to photographing, but I already find the concept and composition both quirky and melancholic.

    I feel like the painted quality makes it look “cheap” in a retro billboard/advertisement kinda way. Maybe it’s intended?
