"Hyperrealism is a genre of painting and sculpture resembling a high resolution photograph. Hyperreal paintings and sculptures are not strict interpretations of photographs, nor are they literal illustrations of a particular scene or subject. Instead, they utilize additional, often subtle, pictorial elements to create the illusion of reality. We present below sample work from some of the best hyper-realist painters out there."

Maybe the picture was originally taken with a camera, and the artist repainted everything

I believe they are painted, you can tell, however, I am curious about the glass, that just seems too perfect, and I have no clue how they can reproduce that with paint. I did not think a glass type pigment existed.

i took a few art classes a while ago, and making glass look like that IS possible.

it's still hard for me to believe that they're paintings though. i'm mind boggled
