Hyperrealism is an artistic movement of the last quarter of the twentieth century. The influence of photography in the hyperrealist movement is also major. Hyperrealist paintings show scenes from everyday life, portraits … But, there are several hypotheses: one who considers that hyperrealism is only a continuation of Pop Art, because he uses as his own popular symbols, the other who sees hyperrealism as a break from abstraction, by resurging figuration.

Hyperrealism consists of the identical reproduction of an image in painting, so realistic that the viewer comes to wonder if the nature of the artistic work is a painting or a photograph.

Among the main artists of this movement, there:

Richard Estes

Born May 14, 1932 in Kewanee, Illinois, is an American painter (now 85 years old)
