These hyperrealistic paintings look like 3D parcels that essentially float off a wall. This Swedish artist named Yrjö Edelmann creates his artworks as two-dimensional oil paintings. His realistic technique requires rendering each crease, tear and paper texture as realistically as possible. This creates the 'trompe l’oeil effect' that simulates the exact visual appearance of a real item.

The parcels in this case show the exact textures that simulate its realistic approach. The vibrant hues used within these oil paintings also create a shiny effect that is viewed as the glare shimmering upon each parcel. These hyperrealistic paintings depict realistic features that can be essentially captured from a high resolution camera lens when viewed from a mere distance.
