The Hyperrealistic Paintings of Hilo ChenJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 28 Dec 2010
It is not a time for summer, nor a visit to the beach here in the USA, but showcasing the hyperrealistic work of Hilo Chen can at least take the East Coast to a warmer place. The subject matter of Chen's work is obviously provocative, and perhaps not for everybody, but the skill in the work is undeniable.
The 68 year-old Taiwan-born, New York-based Chen uses only oil paint on canvas, which would make seeing these pieces in person a must to get their full effect. Most of these paintings are from 2010, but Chen has been creating work in this vein for over 30 years.
