All in the Eyes: The Hyperreal Portraits of Ruben Belloso

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 26, 2013
When we post hyperreal fine artists, we like to see them in context with their work as it gives the painting a more intense, dramatic feel. So looking at Ruben Belloso standing next to his work, in process, makes these portraits all the more better. Even though we kind of want one of the paintings to put its shirt on.

Unreal/Hyperreal Paintings by Damian Loeb

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
We are still trying to figure this artist out, because I have spent a good bit of time staring at this image above and can't wrap my head around the fact that this is a painting. Not in that, oh, it should be a photograph way, but just the immense skill at color and shade that Damian Loeb must have. All of these paintings, depicting intimate moments in bedrooms, either nude or minimally clothed, are just breathtaking to take in.

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 17, 2013
New York-based artist Suzanne Berry is a mostly self-taught artist who paints large realistic-looking bugs on canvases up to 24x36 inches. The large format of her painting allows viewers to see the detail with which she paints the crawly creatures.

Surreal Paintings by Till Rabus

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Even as Swiss artist Till Rabus' works are painted in an almost photo-realist style, his subject matter balances between myth and surrealism. He combines strange still lives with ordinary, discarded and even sometimes anthropomorphized objects. His latest work explores the human figure with tangled body parts!
