If I didn’t come out and say it, many of you would have probably thought these Ben Schonzeit paintings were photographs. After all, the details found within each piece are so crisp and precise that many wouldn’t expect a human to be able to yield such results. But Schonzeit isn’t like any other run-of-the-mill artist; he specializes in a hyperrealist art style and routinely produces images as true-to-life as a digital SLR camera.

Among the fruits and veggies Ben Schonzeit has painted thus far are eggplants, cherries, cucumbers, apples and peaches. He also frequently renders pastries and other sweet delectables. You can truly say he is inspired by his love for food, but who isn’t really?
