Korean artist An Jung-hwan creates hyperrealistic nature paintings. They are such realistic that someone who doesn’t know that they are paintings may think that they are just photographed in a forest.
He was born in 1978, Jung-hwan received his formal education in painting at Keimyung University in Daegu, South Korea. There, the artist focused his creative practice on large-scale oil landscapes. “[Nature] gives a lot of benefits to mankind, such as fresh and clean air, [a] cool breeze… warm sunshine and clear water… and tranquility immersed in silence,” Jung-hwan explains on his Facebook page. His body of work does not contain any hint of human life, choosing instead to highlight the splendor of the environment, untouched and thriving.
