Would You Believe That These Are Paintings? (31 pics)

It’s hard to believe, but these pictures that look like photographs are actually the hyper-realistic paintings. They are created by Canadian artist Jason de Graaf.

Art is from life, but above it. If a piece of artwork is undistinguishable from reality, I would prefer photo to it.

"Art is from life, but above it." Our reality is what differentiates the living from the inanimate. Therefore, hopefully, without using any kind of sophism, is it wrong to assume that art should be above reality? I mean, that's the whole point of art. Being distinguishable from our reality.

I, for one, consider art a masterfully done workpiece. Work. You work, and after you're done, some people, sometimes more than a few, sometimes less are passionate, are in awe and are pleasantly surprised by it. That's art. The art in our reality.

And photographing something means it's less 'artful' then a painting? Why? Does that mean that statues are better or worse than paintings?

And the issue at hand wasn't immortalizing a perfect view or moment, waiting for the perfect shot (that's why professional photographers exist) etc, it was regarding the work this or that artist put into his or her painting.

Or maybe I didn't get the part with the art / reality / life / photo. AKA, your comment.
