At first, second and even third glance, the hyper-realistic artworks of Anna Halldin Maule, a painter based in Hawaii, will be mistaken for photos. In fact, people might not ever believe that they were painstakingly created with a brush and pigments rather than lighting and a camera. There is so much detail that these hyper-realistic artworks are so realistic that they are surreal.
What makes the hyper-realistic artworks even more special is the fact that they portray very beautiful women. People will be drawn to them like moths to a flame for very obvious reason. Yet there is a deeper meaning to her work. Maule writes, "My latest paintings are part of my ‘Persona’ series and through them I explore the ‘masks’ women wear in their quest to discover their true selves."
