Isräel-based oil painter Yigal Ozeri paints better than my iPhone can take photos! Seriously, I’ve stared at this work for over an hour now and still can’t believe these are oil paintings. I know “hyperrealism” is an overused word in the blogosphere world, but holy shit if it’s not totally appropriate in this circumstance! His work is absolutely jaw-dropping.
I wouldn’t say his work is exactly “dangerous” per se (beautiful, angelic women in outdoor settings), but it’s a damned dangerous talent to be able to paint this way. To fool the human eye like this takes some serious skills and patience. I’d love to see Ozeri in action. Perhaps a nice time-lapse video of him creating one of his pieces.
