In the 60’s, the visual art movement known as pop art changed the face of fine arts. The movement continues taking new forms, blending with new technology as time passes.

There are many photorealism artists, but Diego Gravinese is a new member of The Factory. With his technical brilliance in photorealism, he is able to perfectly executes photo transformation onto the canvas. And just like Warhol in the 60’s became popular and controversial due to his silkscreen method, so too has photorealism become Diego Gravinese’s source of buzz.

To some, replication of photographs can not be considered art, but through centuries we’ve seen that wherever debate has existed, therein also lay a new art form.

Gravinese’s paintings are an artistic movement of the new century, merging technology, commercialism and a brilliant idea with exceptional technical skills. Check out some of his work in the gallery above.
