43 Hyperrealistic Creations

Hot Hyperreal Art from Celeb Sketches to Pencil Portraits

— June 10, 2011 — Art & Design
There is something about hyperreal portraits that I can't get enough of.

Maybe it's the fact that most of them appear to be photographs upon first glance, or maybe it's the intense focus and skill required to accurately create a hyperreal portrait. Regardless of the reason, I'm hooked on this unusual art technique.

In this collection of hyperreal portraits, you will see an incredible diversity of uses for hyperrealism, including celebrity sketches, underwater paintings, Pokemon creations, and brutal self-mutilation portraits. The only constant in each of these photo series is that each artist has dedicated themselves to expanding on an underused artistic technique.

Enjoy this collection of some of Trend Hunter's best examples of hyperreal portraits.
