It seems as though photorealistic painting is becoming the norm among technically inclined artists and Kamalky Laureano is continuing that pattern with his contributions to the art world.
Looking at each Kamalky Laureano creation, one can’t help but notice the amazing detail he puts forth into rendering skin. It seems as though the Mexico City-based artist obsesses over details like pores and freckles and his efforts definitely pay off as his paintings rival the realism of actual photographs.
What sets Kamalky Laureano apart from his peers, I feel, is his ability to also invoke a certain mood or atmosphere while still capturing the likeness of his subjects. Viewers can't help but feel a connection to these fictional subjects while looking at particular images, which is a direct result of Laureano’s tampering of lighting conditions and his color choices.
