This Artist Paints Astonishing Hyperrealistic Landscapes

Although hyperrealism is more common with portraits of humans and animals, Michael James Smith decided to focus on landscapes, and it is the best hyperrealism art you will see in a long time.

As you can see in his Instagram account, James Smith specializes in landscape painting and he does this by using oil paints. The English artist who started painting as a child, paints so well that his work looks exactly like photo images.

It takes time and skill to create hyperrealistic landscapes, especially when James Smith paints all the little details and doesn’t miss a thing. See some of his work in the gallery below.
