Spectacular Photoreal Paintings by Jason de Graaf.
Jason de Graaf’s paintings are about stating an alternate reality, the illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface, filtered so that it expresses his unique vision. Though his paintings may appear photoreal, his goal is not to reproduce or document faithfully what he see one hundred percent, but also to create the illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs. Many of his paintings are about relationship of light with reflective and transparent surfaces and his journey to understand those qualities and convey his sense of wonder and intrigue over them. In all his paintings the subject matter is a springboard. Here are some of jason’s photoreal or hyperreal paintings.
