There are various artists that are masters in their field. But when it comes to perfection, only some can achieve it. The real creativity lies in the artists who can draw beyond perfection. These artists use their mind to the fullest and present their art in a never in seen manner. Meet the 30-year-old Italian artist Marco Grassi. He paints intricate portraits so realistically, they seem like pictures.His brilliance lies in the fact that he gives slight unconventional details to his art. He perfectly messes with the audience’s mind by balancing on a very thin line of hyperrealism and surrealism.
“My goal is to stir deep emotions, trying to make people more sensitive,” Grassi said. “I want to combine reality and surrealism, in my pictures exploring human thoughts and nature in a more personal way.” All his arts are so majestic that it leaves the viewer with a dilemma whether it is real or just pictures. He loves to play with his characters. Some of his subjects appear as half-human and half-statues, some dress in colorful fabrics or acquire futuristic jewelry and look like pictures.
So let’s check out the work of this artist and it’s going to blow your mind!

“It is a very long work and requires extreme attention in all of its phases.” Grassi spends variable time on each of his masterpiece depending upon its intricacies and details. But, the fact that he spends weeks for each of his painting is really plausible. By inserting surreal elements into the body (instead of portraying solely its super realistic features), Grassi seeks to highlight our dual way of being:“Our inner side, intimate and extremely sensitive, in opposition to our interest in the appearance of things, like a vase, a pot, a shell. Beautiful and precious, but empty inside.”
“The biggest challenge is always trying to maintain a level of extreme quality <…>, both for the human figure and applied elements, trying to create a homogeneous work in every aspect, as well as overcoming the idea of painting in a way that imitates photography exclusively.”
