The Hyperrealistic Art of Pedro Campos – You Simply Won’t Believe Your Eyes

We aren’t even going to try and be witty on this one.  Pedro Campos is simply and purely one of the most gifted artists we have ever seen.  The 44 year old artist is based out of Madrid and his work will blow your mind.  Pedro takes everyday items and creates incredible illusions.  No, these are not photographs, Pedro is a painter and yes, you can now pick your jaw up off the floor.

Campos started out decorating Night clubs and restaurants and even tried his hand working for ad agencies as an illustrator.  It wasn’t until he turned 30 that he gravitated towards oil painting and the rest is history.

Pedro turns everyday items into masterpieces that boggle the mind.  He admires the works of other artists like Lucien Freud, Richard Estes, Francis Bacon, Antonio López, and Anish Kapoor.  Not because of their attachments to any particular styles or ideals but because of their striking individuality.

Pedro is represented by Plus One Gallery, London.  (Contact maggie@plusonegallery.com for information, prices and availability.)  You can also visit Pedro’s site HERE.

      I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this. The picture with the glass and the two pencils is incredible. They truly look like photos. Glad you liked them.

    Hennig calls bullshit, those are no paintings. That is about as realistic as me being sober on a Friday night.

      Hennig, Hennig, Hennig… of course to your untrained eye these look like photos. Beer goggles make everything a lil blurry. Did you see I dropped your name on the NWA post?
