This is a beautiful winter landscape done in hyper-realist style. The Hyper-realism movement originated in the late sixties and early seventies when artists began producing paintings that appeared to be photographs. In painting, Hyper-realism is synonymous to Photo-Realism. Also know as Superrealism, the movement was most popular in the United States but spread to some parts of Western Europe. In the sculpture medium, the artist often used casts of the human figure to create true-to-form works. This is a very good example.
