Instead of screeching about “holy shit I thought it was a photo,” have a look at some really fantastic hyperrealism and be educated that it exists, people do it, and it’s pretty cool.

There are many many more amazing realism artists out there. Start with Caravaggio and keep going. :)
“Instead of expressing your genuine surprise and innate awe on your first impression of a painting as is natural, do these things I tell you to do instead because you are a philistine and I need to tell you how to think.”
listen for fuck’s sake if you think being an artistic elitist is great go shoot yourself because for fuck’s sake if people are surprised and awed then what the fuck is wrong with that? why can’t people do that? isn’t that one of the purposes of art? for crying out loud you know what let people think what they want about these photos because obviously they’ve THOUGHT about something a response has been generated and that’s a job well done holy shit I fucking HATE elitist sumbitches
if you want people to be “educated” about art then that implies that there’s a certain methodology to doing it and that there’s a “right” way and then that therefore completely removes the importance of learning things your own way holy jesus oh my god fuck this i fucking cannot stand this
oh so sorry people don’t react to art in the way you deem suitable go fuck yourself OP
*headdesk* Thanks for putting all those words in my mouth and taking this post completely out of context.
Holy crap people can be such idiots. How do they get from “hey these people draw REALLY photorealistic stuff go check it out!” to “omg u so dumb u don’t even no these peepz omg fuk u”? it remains a mystery.
But man, that’s some creepily realistic stuff.
