Copenhagen based Swedish artist and designer Anny Wang and Tim Söderström create a series of hypnotic graphic animations. Their animations explore the application of color to animated forms. Having worked as architects, as well as 3D artists, Anny and Tim have taken their exploration of 3D software from working on real architectural projects to building hyper-real environments based on illustration and animation. The studio strive to create mind tickling and unexpected experiences through materiality and technology.
Buenos Aires based Diego Gravinese is a talented Argentinian artist who creates hyperreal oil on canvas and acrylic paintings that at first come as photographs. The works are highly detailed, capturing both mundane and bizarre scenes in photo realistic style.
Bright, vibrant, with deeply saturated colors and subjects full of action and movement, these paintings are emblematic of the good life. Sunny poolsides, scenes from a party, or simply non-sequitur images that amuse with a little surrealness.

Carole A. Feuerman’s hyperrealistic sculptures of human subjects like swimmers, divers, and dancers are undeniably lifelike and magical in their dreamy state.
Feuerman is recognized as one of the world’s most renowned, influential, and popular hyperrealist sculptors. She is best known for her series of swimmers and bathers, a series she first began in the 1970s and continues to expand on today.
“Making a sculpture that is hyperrealistic is not just captured by outward perception, not merely defined by physical forms and spatial fields that blend together but also by interrelationships composed as much by the unseen as by the seen. In the end, it’s like a melting pot, where physicality, sensuality, perfection, and vitality become one.”
