Hyperrealist art today..Posted: August 2, 2014
Whilst carrying out my dissertation research, one book that i have been particularly inspired by is Hyperrealist art today by John Russel Taylor, 2009. Thames and Hudson Ltd.
Artists such as Clive Head have essays featuring in this book, each artist expressing why they continue to create these hyperrealist style paintings in a time of abstract and modern art. As well as taking aspects from the writing to enhance my opinions and views of my dissertation, the artwork within the book have inpsired me for my future work and painting style.
