Paul Cadden

16 Mar

Smokescreen: Incredible detail has been captured by the hyperrealist artist Paul Cadden, but his work leaves you wondering whether your eyes have been tricked

Paul Cadden, 47 yo from Scotland prodcues his own brand of hyperrealistic art. These arn’t phohographs!!!! Goes without saying that he’s epic awesome!!

Shades of grey: Cadden was shortlisted as Artist of the Year 2011 and can usually produce about seven works per year which sell at galleries for up to £5,000 each

Altered reality: Hyperrealism was born from the idea of photorealism, which are paintings based on photographs but created in a non-photographic medium

Not all black and white: From a distance Paul Cadden's work looks like a picture. However, a gallery exhibiting his work said seeing the originals up close reveals the extent of the drawing detail
