These giant portraits of celebrities, historic characters, and other live subjects are not photographies but actually stunning hyper realistic art paintings.

Artist Joongwon Charles Jeong from South Korea has mastered his painting techniques to such a level there is a possibility your jaw will drop from the amazement while you scroll down the gallery of his fascinating work. He uses acrylic paint on canvas and he can paint the smallest details on faces of the subjects. We can only imagine the precision of his brush strokes while he paints every pore of the selected face.

Joongwon studied Visual Communication Design at the Hongik University of Fine Art & Design in Seoul. He has had solo and group exhibitions in Seoul, South Korea and has also found popularity online with his great works of art. Soon he is going to become a teacher in an artistic course, trying to pass what he has learned so far to younger students. More info: Facebook | Instagram
