Known for his ultra-realistic portraits, artist Kevin Peterson has created unique paintings that are reminiscent of children's stories and fairy tales.

The art all features realistic paintings of animals such as bears, wolves and foxes wandering around with children who are exploring urban areas. One of the more beautiful of the paintings is one in which a young girl shielding her eyes as a bear stands protectively behind her on a dilapidated street. Another particularly poignant painting is one in which a young girl walks alone with her head down with graffiti adorning the walls behind her.

These beautiful ultra-realistic portraits manage to capture the innocence of fairy tales with the difficult reality of the real world.
