Pop Art and Hyperrealism

krispy 560x417 Doug Bloodworth: Hyper realistic super hero paintings

By Jared Erickson

A great deal of hyperrealistic paintings and drawings depict “pop art.” Much like the pop art movement of the mid-20th century, these artworks depict objects commonly seen in everyday situations. Like traditional pop art, there are many pictures categorized as hyperrealism that show food objects, comic books, billboards, and random cultural objects. Some hyperrealistic creations combine aspects of pop art to make each painting. (Like the Jared Erickson picture at left depicting comics, food, and, in a way, advertising.)
