An Artist Creates The Hyperrealistic Paintings Of Top Tourist Destinations

1
A British artist has brought to life some of the most vibrant cities in the world – with incredibly detailed paintings capable of making even locals double-take.

2
Realist painter Nathan Walsh, from York, has spent the past 12 years painting the intricate details of cities such as New York, Paris and Barcelona.

3
The sense of realism is partly created by Nathan’s incredible use of geometry, which involves the artist sometimes sketching and photographing more than 100 images of a location before committing to the canvas.

4
Depending on the complexity of the work, a painting can fetch up to a whopping $125,000.

5
For larger work, the drawing stage can take up to one month, before Nathan brushes over the canvas with a glaze of oil paint.

6
Nathan said: ‘Before I visit a city I tend not have a clear idea of what I’d like to paint – I just amble around waiting for something to connect with’.

7
Nathan, who was born in Lincoln, became interested in realist paintings while in university, focusing on the medium more while studying for his master’s degree.

8
Nathan’s works have been exhibited in the likes of Zurich and London, and today Nathan deals exclusively with the Bernarducci Meisel Gallery in New York, USA.
