Photorealistic Nature Paintings

Artist Cindy Wright Captures Real Life in Hyperreal Illustrations

— August 9, 2011 — Art & Design
Belgian artist Cindy Wright is a 38-year-old painter and illustrator who resides in Antwerp, and has developed a unique aesthetic that makes much of her work resemble the kind of average objects (animals, food, garbage) you see in your every day life, only stylized in a gripping photorealistic manner.

As an artist, Cindy Wright's credentials are stacked. She is a Master graduate of the Royal Academy for Fine Arts in Antwerp, and she is also Postgraduate laureate at the Higher Institute for Fine Arts. Her artwork has been exhibited at museums around the world, including the Las Vegas Art Museum in Nevada, the Mark Moore Gallery in Los Angeles, The Artbrussels Galerie Ronmandos in Brussels, Belgium, and Galerie Ronmandos in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Looking through her portfolio, it's easy to see why. As an artist, Cindy Wright excels at making the mundane appear grandiose. Her illustration of an empty plate of lobster is alluring, technically proficient, and incredibly original. She has a style distinctly her own, and that explains why museum curators are so eager to have her in their buildings. Up next for Cindy Wright in 2011: shows in Culver City, California, Baton Rogue, Louisiana, and Melbourne, Florida.
