"Parking"
2006-2007
Acrylic on canvas, 60x80 cm / 24x32 in
© Ville Kohtala


This is my first contribution to Hyperrealism. It took me half a year to paint, from October '06 to April '07. It is painted with regular painting brushes, and by free hand.

I got introduced to Photo- and Hyperrealism last fall, and became instantly very fascinated by the extreme accurasy, details and realism. I decided to go ahead and make an attempt myself, and half a year later I was finally finished! I have developed my skills and learned lots of useful tricks during the process, and the result is truly satisfying. It has been interesting and fun, and I will definately make more hyperrealism pieces.

When it comes to modern art, nothing is more expressive to me than extreme details and art that truly shows that there is hard work behind it. Hyperrealism would be the art movement that covers all that better than anything else.

The painting shows a street scene from downtown Oslo (the capital of Norway). The reason I chose this image was the spectacular reflections on the cars and the building windows, and the lighting that creates great contrasts.

Parking, acrylic on canvas by ~vijujako is a beautiful composed street scene with wonderful lighting. Oh, did i mention that this is a painting? Welcome to the wonderfully confusing world of Hyperrealism! ( Suggested by MrYJDrake and Featured by De-Profundis )

can't fault it one bit. Even though I know it is a painting, my eyes don't believe it. On most of the DA hyperrealism attempts, you can find some part of the painting that looks like it is painted and not photographed - but not this one! It looks ever so slightly out of focus, like it was taken with a very old camera - but this adds to the illusion. Half a year makes you very patient and very skilled!

We would like to introduce your stunning works to Asia market.

My name is Andrew Hsu and I am the member of Art Revolution Taipei Art Fair Executive Committee. I like your art works and color expressions so much and would like to know if you will be interested in exhibiting some of your original works(particully your HYPERREALISM) in our 2012 Art Fair in Taipei. Our current A.R.T. 2011 art fair ended with great acclaim -- there were in total 26,681 collectors, art lovers, museum directors, and dealers who attended our show between 5.11.2011 ~ 5.15.2011. Of the entire 203 participating artists, 182 sold their works, indicating an astonishing 89.66% “success rate” ! The greatest amount of artworks sold by an individual artist was 74 pieces. Some art critics and international media dubbed us “The Art Fair Experts and ROCKED the other Asian art fairs”!! (www.arts.org )

We are now announcing the main theme of A.R.T. 2012 is: “My Art‧My Solo Show” and the art fair period is 3.21.2012 ~ 3.25.2012. And I believe our well connected channels in Asia could add some more value and bring some big time Asia collectors or more sponsorship to your already successful art career. Basically, our committee and the art director will have a final selection process to help our candidate artists selecting the most suitable art works to be exhibited in A.R.T. art fair in order to match the criteria and the annual theme of exhibition. But we could talk more details later if you are interested to know more about our special offer and privileges for you.

Let me know if any questions and looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely yours,

Andrew Hsu
