New York-based artist Yigal Ozeri takes hyper-realism to the next level. It's hard to believe that his work isn’t an actual photograph. Capturing solar flares, dreamy light, and contrasting color tones, he’s shown just how far he’s willing to go to capture a moment.
These are pieces shown at the Mike Weiss Gallery in New York. The exhibit, titled "Desire for Anima," is a tribute to Carl Jung’s concept of the unconscious, or the true inner-self of an individual.
The first step in Ozeri’s process is to photograph random people in their natural environments. Once he’s back in the studio, he runs the images through photoshop and alters them as a guide. From there, he paints with oil on large canvases to complete his grandiose master pieces.
