Richard Estes is a painter with an almost magical ability to create stunning canvases that seem more akin to portals of reality.

Focusing mainly on urban cityscapes, Richard Estes brings his art to uncanny life in a way that seems to defy reality. Particularly impressive is the way he is able to mimic even reflections as if they were real -- a task that is no mean feat when it comes to the painted medium.

Implications - Since people are so busy with their jobs, relationships and families, they forget to stop and appreciate what is around them. Businesses that have the ability to get people to stop for a second and think about their surroundings with captivating advertisements will gain attention and have success with their products. If an ad doesn't stand out, people will not acknowledge it.
