This painting style emerged in Europe and the USA in the late 1960. It is characterised by its meticulousness and precise representation of the reality. Artists strive to create paintings that look photographic by playing with lights, reflections, shadows and details as painstaiking as possible. It is often inspired by photographs to gather as many information as possible. It is the introduction of new technologies that helped bring forward photorealistic paintings to this point of further precision. These newer paintings are sometimes referred to as “hyperrealism”.
