Hyperrealism – a trend in art, which causes a huge amount of controversy. The question is whether it can be considered art at all? The word “Hyperrealism” was coined by Isy Brachot in 1973 as a French synonym for “photo-realism”. “Hyperrealism” became the name of a large catalog and exhibition in Brussels in the same 1973. The exhibition presented works of mainly American artists photo realists, but also included a number of significant works of European artists. Almost thirty years later, the term began to be used to determine the creation of a new group of artists.

Modern hyper realism is based on the aesthetic principles of photo realism, but unlike the latter, does not seek to literally copy everyday reality. Objects and scenes in hyper realistic painting detailed, to create the illusion of reality, but this is not surrealism, as the picture could well happen.
