Andrew Ferez, was born and raised in Russia as an artist who cultivated his creativity in the arts at an early age and mastered his abilities and knowledge ever since, in an endless process of perfection.
Andrew’s work is a combination of dark and twisted horror with a soft hint of solace and beauty.
Andrew’s illustrations move us into the abysses of our mind, showing us unimaginable worlds that are both macabre yet oddly familiar and whimsical.
A lot of his works are created with two dimensional mediums but in some of his latest work he has used CGI to take his his creative notions into the third dimension. Quite a bit of his illustrations are already created as book covers. He currently tracks his work on his blog and has quite a few of his newest works shared on Deviant Art.

Photorealism, Hyperrealism or simply put realism; by definition the idea behind realist art is the accomplishment of replicating an object found IRL or within our 3rd dimension. I’ve found myself more than once within the argument that the ‘prestige artist’ highest-level of artistry is one who can achieve mastery of this technique. I absolutely respect the ability to achieve such a level-of-being within the realm of our artscape however I personally do not believe this classifies an artist as the highest level or ultimate, in my opinion it simply allocates the artist into the realm of the refined elitest for their chosen style. Technique exemplifies the personality or characteristics of the artist, the technique should reflect and demonstrate how they see the world; which is exactly what this does but in a very retentive and extremely disciplined manner, and yes the notable characteristics of this skill are nothing short of amazing. In my short time on this planet I’ve came across some very extraordinary hyperrealist artists who have absolutely impressed me beyond my expectations First being Roberto Bernardi. Originating in Italy he had his start as a young child using oils later progressing as a restoration artist at the Church of San Francesco a Ripa. Later in the early 90’s he began his focus on photorealism, ultimately leading to hyperrealism. His mastery of hyperrealism in oil lead him on his journey to becoming a world renowned artist. His work has been published in the most prestigious art magazines and galleries throughout the world.
Here are some samples from his galleries:

Second yet not in quality, a different spectrum rather is the hyperrealism brought to life by Joongwon Jeong. His paintings are what I yearned to see after studying the marble statuary of the greeks. His work satisfies a curiosity shared by many which is a major part of what makes his work so appealing, this in conjunction with his innate ability to encompass details of the subject to a painfully accurate degree make him a master of hyperrealistic artistry. Inspired by Michaelangelo his paintings are commonly mistaken for photographs; very large photographs. Jeong hails from South Korea and uses Acrylic as his medium.
