Photorealism: In focus

In the late 1960s, a group of young artists in the Unites States rebels against the prevailing fashion of abstract art. Instead, they focus on precisely painting everyday scenes using photos as their foundation. These monumental paintings are so lifelike they resemble photographs. Photorealism, also known as hyperrealism, is born. This exhibition celebrates the beauty and craftsmanship of this art movement, and invites the viewer to discover the stories behind these exquisite works from both old and new generations of artists.
