Discover Photorealist Artists. Get to know the world of Nadia Attura, a contemporary artist working with photography and mixed media. These photorealistic creations do in fact start life as photographs, but Nadia uses washes, paints, chalk and ink on top of these images, creating a multi-layered effect that adds a sense of depth to each work. We love her choice of colour, which ranges from vibrant palettes to more moody shades and hues, giving each image a distinct atmosphere. At times, her use of bright colour shifts her work into the direction of Surrealism, but the level of detail maintains a photorealistic effect.
If you’re more interested in Portraits, then take a look at Nigerian artist Fatola Israel. His drawings pay exceptional attention to detail, achieving a hyper-realistic effect that makes them difficult to distinguish from photographs. Through his artwork, he explores complex human emotions and some of the struggles that mankind faces. Each of his subjects has a deeply expressive gaze, lending a strong sense of emotion to the drawing.
For a taste of Architectural Art, we recommend British artist Bianca Maccall. This contemporary painter focuses on both interior and exterior spaces, with a strong focus on the structure and form of buildings. Her paintings appear at once to be hyper-realistic and almost graphical in quality, making use of bold, contrasting colours and clean lines to achieve her signature style. Bianca’s mastery of dimension and perspective make her one to watch.
