Opposite to our recent Hyper-Realistic Acrylic Body Paintings done by Alexa Meade, where she applied acrylic paints on her subjects in such a way to make them appear to be part of a painting, this time we have something completely opposite! Not much words needed, as the title says; can you force your mind to understand these aren’t real people, but wall paintings instead? Looking forward to hear your comments!

BTW, many thanks for your logo submissions (here). Some of them are really creative. I just hope we’ll receive many more ideas and examples, before we make the final decision. Another news is that now you can follow whats new behind this site on Twitter. Previously I used Twitter only to syndicate posts, but only now I realized how useful can the service be. For example, if our site goes down or has problems, I can update you there what’s been going on or similar! Hope you recognize the usefulness of the service… This is why I recommend you follow us there, just in case of emergencies.

  1. Holy! Those are great paintings, seriously. This person has a real talent. I am in awe.

  2. essayn says:

    WoOW, unbelievable! Just thought: Ya, of course the background was painted…but not the characters!! Awsome they really look so real, except the old manlast one).

  3. Valerie says:

    What the…. these are brilliant. I had to read the paragraph to find out what I was looking at. I was trying to find the illusion on the background of the pictures. Fantastic!

  4. Pete says:

    Awesome, the detail is breath taking. I heard of things ‘jumping off of the page at you,’ but not the wall. Where are these and who is the painter?

  5. Chris says:

    Those look legit!

    Ru sure that theyre fake? u should check again…

  6. Memer says:

    Woow!! I’m really impressed. I like painting too and I really think this artist has a lot of talent! For me the most difficult is the hair and in these pictures it’s perfectly real! Is possible to see more pictures of this artist??!!!

  7. Fred says:

    These are truly spectacular. Realism of this quality is really quite rare in a painting. Please let us know the name of the artist.

  8. I truly believe this guy is the best artist I have ever seen. I cannot help but wonder though; why you didn’t tell us who he is…I’m assuming that is him painting in the 3rd picture; or is that an illusion too?

  9. alice says:

    wow! it’s so amazing. How can he do that? it’s so difficult for me to paint a house and not look like a baby

  10. joe says:

    they look more like photographs with a filter than actual paintings. Incredible…

  11. OrangeGrove says:

  17. steve says:

    Amazing.

  18. Care Bear says:

    I’ll believe anything you tell me.

  19. jim says:

    You think for paintings he would have made the subjects more attractive. Those faces are scary ugly!

  20. selena says:

    this is sooooo amazing i really had to force my eyes and mind to realize they were not real ppl, i am in total awe!!wonderful

  21. Pam says:

    WOW They are amazing!! The artist is super talented, if I didn’t know they were painting I would have thought it was a photo of a real person!

  22. amazing! So much talent! How did the artist do the hair like that? How did he/she get the colors for the faces so right? I do a lot of art and that was just amazing for me to see. I am humbled

  23. Annisia says:

    WoW thats soooooooooo cool!!! i can paint orety well but not like THAT!!!! i think its something to do with the shadows of the people in the paintings…

  24. Janmanni says:

    Excellent paintings. Shading, colours, everything. Didn’t realize that it is possible to use paints like this.

  25. May says:

    When I first saw the illusion I though “Those people don’t blend in at all” then I went and read the post, and I couldn’t believe my eyes.

    Amazing illusion!

  26. Carlie Jean says:

    Wow very life like! Especially the first few! They look 3D! This person should be so proud! They can paint anyone and bring them to life!

  27. Leo says:

    Good things here, not as the new design of mighty optical :D (not so jocking)
    Nevertheless thanks for all those things that you broadcast through this “blog”.

  28. Chad says:

    Those are just amazing. And if I saw the first one without reading the intro I would’ve thought that was just a regular picture.

  29. They’re obviously Not fake. Every real artist should be able to paint something as realist as this, more often they choose not to :D.

  30. Allie says:

    breathtaking! so real..

  31. sara says:

    these are amazing, I thought the first girl was real until I read the description, this person has a lot of talent

  32. sushanta says:

    WOW!!! What a great artist he/she must be. The artist must be having a nano knowledge/perception of light and colour. The paintings are really great. Why such artists should not get nobel or similar award!!!!!!!!

  33. Crystal says:

    Hah! I thought it meant that the background was a painting, and I was wondering what was so special about a person standing in front of a background! Then I realized that the people were the paintings!

  34. eb says:

    Wow, This artist is nothing less than incredible! Amazing work!!! I hope to see more.

  35. Debby Eaton says:

    WOW – absolutely amazing

  36. Lol says:

    you should look at Patricia Picinini her works are hyper-realistic too.

  37. goodie2shoes says:

  48. Eugenia Ng says:

    that person is VERY talented… he has the potential to get more credit than this

  49. Paul Schilling says:

    Incredible! Amazing! Could you imagine walking around just thinking ALL DAY long who you could paint on whatever wall? Mind blowing!

  50. in awe says:

    these are awesome.
    i’ve seen on a magazine paintings of one other guy that does this kind of work. i can’t remember his name but it was featured in a Juxtapose mag issue maybe in 2008 or 2009. some pretty great stuff there too

  51. razor says:

    yea I can say these pics are NOT real.
    those are likes made with 3d Max or Maya or DirectX 10 rendered images. but in real it’s great. by manipulating your eyes well u can understand the truth.

  52. C.A.S. says:

    wow this is awesome i looked at the first one in the iGoogle gadget i was looking for the illusion in the background had no idea the person wasn’t real until i read the description

  53. AshenNight says:

    Um, Does anyone actually know the name of this artist? His work is amazing o_o

  54. indian says:

    Mind blowing!!!!
    Really Superb…..

  55. Dee says:

    This artist is unbelievably talented.
    I would really love to see more. Awesome art.

  56. Rob says:

    Awesome, but whats the artist’s name?

  57. Bishop says:

    The artist’s name is David Kassan. And it’s a real shame that the post was created without naming him even once!
    All artists deserve credit, especially when their work is the subject of an entire page of his work, such as this.

    This is his website:
    http://davidkassan.com/

    Now we know his name, and we can all say how cool David Kassan’s work is.

    Just thought I’d solve the mystery by doing a little research.
    :)

  58. waldyman says:

    wow.. i wish i could paint like that.. really amazing x.x

  59. MiniGoth says:

    This is David Kassan – he teaches at the artist’s league in NY, and paints oil on canvas.

    No, there is no 3D programming in his oil paintings.

    (The idea is particularly amusing after watching him work.)

  60. That’s just skill, no illusion to me.

  61. sirius says:

    Really awesome….superb…rocking….
    wats the artist name???.Any more paintings of this type???

  62. Awesome painting ! they look so real !

  63. DetectiveKitty says:

    Very skilled artist, they look completely realistic and deserve a lot of attention.

  64. Awesome paintings looks so real, well job dear.

  65. Jason says:

    Stunning work, shame it wasn’t credited in the article, as others have mentioned, and thanks to Bishop for naming him.

  66. Tonee Rhian Rose says:

    That is so cool!

  67. ran says:

  69. nenita says:

    wow!its very cool!i have the passion and a little talent in realistic painting but no formal education..i wish i have the same talent as David!he is really Great!!!

  70. Anonymous says:

    WOW! Love them x

  71. Sharon says:

    Ahhh folks….herein lies the nature of the web…misinformation. The artists name is David Kassan. See. http://davidkassan.com/statement.php

    Oil paintings on canvas that create an illusion of an outside space in the exhibition space ie. the gallery.

    And no razor, they have not been created using 3d software….

  72. Raff_the_Math says:

    I don’t believe this… like i I seriously don’t believe what I’m seeing!
    (note originally by AVGN)

  73. we have several oil paintings at home. some are even vintage old paintings that dates back several decades ago ‘

  74. John K says:

    The Ultimate Truth…the Unknowable Truth or a Belief that such a “Real” truth Exists is not in play here. Can I believe these are not real (“true living people”) but Wall Paintings?” Certainly…especially if I was standing outside the gallery looking at them through a window. BUT I WASN’T! And so my perspective, my perception of the images…created for me by the photographs…fills me with the amazing sensation that I am looking a “true living people”. I think a better heading would have underscored the artist’s gift: “Can You Believe These People Are Real?” That heading would clearly indicate that the paintings are Not Real but would challenge me, at least, to articulate anything I could find that would lead to a statement like, “Of course they aren’t, and here’s how I know!”. THAT would be a very difficult field to hoe. JK

  75. Rajesh says:

    Very nice Paintings
