Hyperrealism

Real life is simulated in photorealistic artworks that defy deception

Implications - Artists are becoming ever more concerned with the accurate representation of reality, attempting to recreate real life with photorealistic works. In an era of misleading advertising and falsehoods like airbrushing, it follows that consumers will show their concern and appreciation for realism in everything they do and see.
