I Refuse to Believe these are NOT paintings

 

I consider this artist to have super human talents. Alien in fact. Seriously, why aren’t they checking this painter’s DNA for extra-terrestrial origins? His name is Yigal Ozeri, an oil painter from Isräel best-known for his cinematic-scale portraits of pretty girls hanging out with nature in perfect sunlight. Let me know when  you see a brushstroke…

No matter how hard I try I cannot get to grips that these are not photographs…

Here’s Mick Jagger’s daughter Lizzie, immortalised by Yigal’s brushstrokes…

I just can’t believe my eyes when I look at these paintings…

Here is the artist Yigal Ozeri at work in his studio

Yigal Ozeri succinctly summarizes his current practice as follows: “I paint women in nature.” Though he insists that his large-scale, photorealistic paintings are “reality,” because they are based on videos and photographs he takes of his subjects, his works are also infused with a Pre-Raphaelite sense of fantasy, imagination, and ethereality. Ozeri often catches his female protagonists in pensive, dreamy states, seeming to merge with their natural surroundings.

You’ll probably want to check his website to make sure I’m not pulling your leg and you can also see more of his work at; Artsy, Louis K. Meisel Gallery & Zemack Contemporary Art.
