BRILLIANT LIFELIKE ART
FROM ARTIST LENG JUN
They say the camera changed forever the need for portrait painters to paint realistically, since man is incapable of matching the technology.
when I saw this art work from Chinese painter, Leng Jun, I realized that man
can indeed imitate nature as far as the eye can see. Just look at these
pictures and try to imagine the deftness of touch and the incredible skill
needed to produce them.
Jun, born in 1963 in Sichuan, China, is a modern day master at shadowing. Just like I fondly picture the ultimate creator having done, it seems Jun can create darkness and light from his paintbrush.
Clancy's comment: Stunning detail.
