When an artist like Denis Mayer Jr. is able to paint their subject matter so skillfully that their art seems indistinguishable from photography, that's when you know you are witnessing the work of a master.

Consisting of nature-inspired artworks that feature breathtakingly realistic animals in their natural habitats, this collection by Denis Mayer Jr. proves that his attention to detail, particularly with the individual personalities of his subject species, is completely unrivaled.

In addition to being strikingly real, however, what is most transfixing about Denis Mayer Jr's work is how he manages to imbue each animal with an unmistakable hint of humanity. THeir eyes, more than anything else, suggest the life and soul that is so easily lost in translation when it comes to two-dimensional recreations.
