26 Awesome Hyper Realistic Acrylic Paintings By Jason De Graaf

This time I am going to share hyper realistic paintings by Jason de Graaf who uses Glass and Reflection to portray his imagination. His art works may make anyone confused and make it really difficult to draw out the difference between painting and photography.
I am amazed to see such a wonderful talent on this planet.  Jason De Graaf is one such artist whose work will keep your tongue staggering out for a while and will make your mind fight your opinion that whether to believe that these images are not photography, these are paintings and the medium used is acrylic. Hard to believe..Isn’t it? Let’s see that what the painter has to share with us, starting with his thoughts, followed by his acrylic paintings.

Artist Statement:

Acrylic Painting: My acrylic paintings are about staging an alternate reality, the illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface, filtered so that it expresses my unique vision. Though my paintings may appear photoreal my goal is not to reproduce or document faithfully what I see one hundred percent, but also to create the illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs.
Many of my paintings are about the relationship of light with reflective and transparent surfaces and my journey to understand those qualities and convey my sense of wonder and intrigue over them. In all of my paintings the subject matter is a springboard and a means to explore my ability to communicate something unique to the viewer. I use colours and composition intuitively with the intent of imbuing my paintings with emotion, mood and mystery. Throughout, I try to remain open to new ideas as the painting unfolds.
