How to draw a photo: Incredible hyperrealistic paintings by a South Korean artistPictolic
South Korean artist Yang-sang Kim (Young-sung Kim) conquers the world of painting with incredible paintings that look more like photographs than canvases.
Kim first started drawing 20 years ago. The artist uses hyperrealism to show the difference between living beings and things in our world. Kim draws inspiration from nature and urban life around her.
Yang-sang Kim is one of the highest-paid hyperrealist artists of our time. It takes from three to ten months to create each painting. A small painting costs about 8 thousand pounds (more than 800 thousand rubles), a large one - 100 thousand pounds (more than 10 million rubles).
With his works, the artist asks the question why society forces a person to put material values above spiritual ones.
For example, a goldfish inside a glass of water embodies the beauty of life, which is locked in a prison created by human hands.
Kim uses objects that are opposites in their essence to emphasize the difference between the world of living and material goods.
An important aspect of the artist's works was the threat posed by modern society in relation to antiquities and nature. In a series of his paintings, Kim tries to express how much has disappeared due to the development of the cult of material values.
