Art imitates reality. It's not always a true depiction of our world, but hyperrealism erases this line. Sculptures, drawings, and paintings created by hyperrealist artists look no different than high-resolution images. They are detailed, precise and bold in color. It makes it hard to believe that these were created using tools such as airbrush, acrylics, oils or a combination of all.

Twitter user, @DonovanGoliath, shared the work of Nigerian artist Oresegun Olumide and many were stunned to find out that they were actually oil paintings.

@DonovanGoliath shared more of Oresegun Olumide's work on Twitter and asked users to share/re-tweet this amazing artist's work:

Some people were actually confused if these are pictures or paintings:

The artist even revealed why water is a recurring theme in his paintings:

Twitter users then shared hyperrealist works of other artists that are just mesmerizing:

These jaw-dropping paintings are a mix of narrative, charm, and emotion. They display an aspect of our vision that would otherwise be unseen.

Definitely looking forward to their solo exhibits!
