Photorealistic Paintings of Food by Tjalf Sparnaay
Outstanding oil on canvas paintings by Tjalf Sparnaay, a self-taught artist based in Amsterdam.
“Tjalf Sparnaay’s paintings hit the retina like bolts of lightning in a clear blue sky. No other painter confronts us quite so clearly with ordinary objects that we hold dear.
Since 1987, he has been working on his imposing oeuvre, constantly seeking new images that have never been painted before. What he calls Megarealism is part of the contemporary global art movement of Hyperrealism, and Sparnaay is now considered one of the most important painters working in that style.”Art Posted on November 11, 2011
