The 47-year-old, from Scotland, is able to recreate photos in amazing detail, often just using only a pencil.
From the wrinkles on a woman’s face, a puff of smoke from a cigarette or dripping water – Cadden’s drawings look unbelievably realistic.
SmokeScreen: Amazingly minute detail has been captured by the hyperrealist Scottish-born artist Paul Cadden, but his work leaves you wondering whether your eyes have been tricked .
Hyperrealism was born from the idea of photorealism, which are paintings based on photographs but created in a non-photographic medium. Taking an average of between four to six weeks to produce, Cadden creates about seven to eight pieces every year – which usually come in A1 or A0 sizes – and sells it for £5,000 each or sometime even more.
A spokesman for London’s Plus One Gallery, which is featuring Cadden’s work in its current hyperrealism exhibition, said: ‘When you look at a picture of his work, they do look like photographs.’
But when you see it in a gallery up close, you can tell it’s a drawing. The detail is incredible.’
Cadden, from Glasgow, was last year shortlisted for Artist of the Year 2011 for his drawing, ‘Painted context’.
