We have been seeing a surge of talented Singaporean artists constantly being featured on online websites all over the world and we feel nothing less than proud and happy for our fellow Singaporeans, whom people have once said would not amount to anything much in art. We are glad these artists are proving them wrong, Singaporeans are creative after all. Our latest talent is Ivan Hoo, an artist who taught himself how to draw hyper-realistic artwork on boards of wood with colored pencils, pastels and ink. His finished masterpieces really pop out and give the illusion of 3D images.
Ivan loves drawing realistic art that plays tricks on the eyes and brain, and he mostly works with work because it gives him a lot of dimension and ideas to “create something close to reality”, other than that he says pastels work beautifully with it too.
Without further ado, we shall shut up and let Ivan's artwork do the talking. Remember, all these are drawings/paintings, not real objects simply placed on a wooden board. If you are not convinced, you can check out Ivan's Instagram
where he documents the process of his artworks. Sometimes in these photos, he places a real object next to his drawing, try to see if you can spot which one is a real object and which is just an illusion!
