Paul Cadden — Hyperrealism

I just got introduced to the work of Scottish painter Paul Cadden, who works in the hyperrealism style. His works with graphite, charcoal and paint are done with meticulous detail and many of them are indistinguishable from photographs, but are even more textured than photographs. (He works from photos often.) You can check out his work at his site. The originals cost way too much for my pocketbook but if you live in the UK, you might be able to catch one of his exhibitions, and maybe prints are available somewhere. Here’s a brief interview the artist did with Olivia Palermo and one of his most famous works:
