  • Wow these are fantastic. They all have a hyper-real vibrant energy to them. Beautiful work.

  • Eric Hosford

    amazing work, i love the texture in the skin and the warm created

    • Levi

      The texture in the skin really brings the paintings to life, especially when he highlights every little tiny pore and wrinkle!

  • Monsoonking

    I’m usually not a big fan of “hyper-realistic” work, but there’s something special about these. They feel real yet unreal, perfect in their rendering of imperfection. Very cool.

    • Kimi

      I totally agree–“photorealism” doesn’t capture what’s going on here. Apparently he learned the technique from his father. He divides the canvas into a grid, painting millimeter by millimeter. The result is truly unreal.

      • Ben

        Is his dad Chuck Close?

      • Kimi

        Ha! Good guess

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
