Artist Hiro Kitayama (alias Hirothropologie) from Japan is the creator of photorealistic paintings that are spectacularly detailed. Every freckle is highlighted along with every strand of hair. As for the clothes he depicts, all the elements are artfully drawn, which enhances the sense of texture reality.

Using a set of precise tools, the artist carefully creates strokes that are indistinguishable from those in real life with their accuracy and color. Adherence to this principle makes the portraits created so realistic, as if they are alive.

In general, everyone Hiro painted looks like they're going to step off his large-scale canvases and become part of the real world.

Hiro Kitayama's breathtaking art first went viral online in 2015, when photos of his hyperrealistic masterpieces were republished thousands of times on social media, but since then no updates have been received about his works. The same works are still online, and his social media pages have since been disabled.

Let's hope that Hiro is doing well and he is still creating his supernatural portraits somewhere, because the art world definitely needs someone who can create this level of hyperrealistic art.
