There is something that is always mind-blowing about hyper-realism and Juan Carlos Manjarrez has managed to create stunning pieces that look like they could be photographs.
He uses oil paint as his medium for creativity, and that is a difficult paint to use with fluidity. However, Manjarrez has been able to successfully create gorgeous art.
He almost exclusively uses black and white paint, and when he does use color, it's primarily to add a pop to the piece. It's incredible to view his work, and it takes more than a minute to realize that these are hand drawn.
Juan Carlos Manjarrez has been able to elevate hyper-realism by his lack of color, and the amount of emotion he has been able to inject into his pieces.
