Up Close and Personal with Tom Martin, a Hyperrealism Artist

Happy New Year 2011, everyone! I hope 2011 is the best year for us. We can reach our dream in this year. This day is the art day. Why I said so, because today I want to talk again about art. If my last hub talked about sculpture, but now I talk about painting. Again….., I am not get bored to talk about this subject. If you liked beauty, you may love painting. We can found beautiful aspect from painting. Painting was created to be enjoyed. To appreciate painters work. This time I want to write again about a very talented young man with his creation in painting. That’s made me want to say “wow” and “wow” again. I really appreciate many kind of painting stream. But I don’t know why I attracted with this style. Have you ever hear about Hyperrealism? If you didn't ever heard about this before, I am glad to share my knowledge about this painting style. Please continue to read………

The history of Super-realism

Conceptual art is an art movement that was born almost at the same time with minimalist art and Super Realism, it begun in 1960. In some cases, political uncertainty and growing social awareness in Europe and America in the 60's, encourage the artists to stay away from the tradition of the art elite. Some artists are not interested and refused contra-ditional, like: the style, values and aura. Beside the market system didn’t made sense, gallery space limitations and the dominations of curators who increasingly narrow the space of artist at that time. It sharpen the reaction of the artists to create new art. A new art which offered an alternative concept. These reforms originated from England around 1952, involving artists of other European countries, and then spread widely in America in the 1960's

Super-Realism was born based on the desire to return to the form, based on previous flow. The existence of the camera has been used a number of artists as a support in the process of work. Photo camera work was used as a base to produce works of art. The perfection of nature produced by the camera was reproduced back into the work of two dimension art. Knowledge of photography was also used by artists to represent reality with the end result is similar with photography techniques, especially in terms of lighting, the perfection of form and color. Works by two-dimensional super-realism based on the use of photography is also a work art called Photorealism.

Super-Realism artist basically was trying to represent the reality which has great quality both in terms of shapes, colors, light effects and so on, which is better than the quality of the real reality. But how about Hyperrealism, this is a new stream which is begun on 1970. Hyperrealism is the evolution of “photorealism”. I heard that hyperrealism was dedicated to making artworks that are “more real than real”. It’s just not copying the photography, but this is more about emphasize elements.


A biography of Tom Martin

This time I’ll talk about young English artist. His name is Tom Martin. With his talent, he could made a beautiful painting which is real than photography. 24 years of age but he has great motivation. Now, he is already one of the most respected artist in the world. We can see his creation in art exhibition all over the world. I give my thumbs up for him, because looking at his creation we could swear they are simple photographs, but actually they are painstakingly painted by hand, WOW……. May I say this word again?

Who is Tom Martin? He is hyperrealist painter from the UK. He current lives in Rotherham, England. He is a young man who interest with art, sport, painting, and photorealism. Alvarez Kings is his favorite band. His favorite artists are Davis Cone, Luciano Ventrone, Roberto Bernardi, Berdardo Torrens and Pedro Campos. He uses various tools to make his creation so beautiful, like: airbrush, paint, paintbrushes, camera. I heard from that he also use acrylic paint to create the most amazing paintings. Please enjoy the pictures below.

I am glad to share about talented person, especially for the young person. There’s no end if talk about talent. This is a big gift for us. The problem is how to use our talent to make something better. I believe we blessed with talent and every person has different talent and ability. I hope we get motivation by reading this hub. I believe we can do the best in our life.

I have to edit this hub, because Tom Martin personally want to come to this hub and share his comment. I am honored with this. I have to apology to all of you, I have a big mistake to put another picture which doesn't belongs to Tom. I finished to fix this and I have made some correction related with the pictures. Please forgive me....... and thanks Tom!

    I heard that we can develop our talent start from early on. This is amazing way to form someone into multi talented person. This also happen with this kid. Kieron Williamson is one of the famous painters now. Most people called him a young Picasso.
  • The Beauty of 3D Painting

    Most of painting is in two dimensional shape. But have you ever heard about 3-D painting? For me this is one the new painting style. We can see this painting like a real in 3-D shape. Who is the creator of 3-D painting? Edgar Mueller is one of the street painters who dedicated his self to make a huge art work. Many people can enjoy his art work at the same time.

When I first browsed quickly through this hub I was impressed by the photos presented. They are crisp and art in themselves just as photos but many other artists could do that just as well. It was only after I started reading, that I was then truly amazed and impressed by this young artist's gift to reproduce what he sees by painting! He has an incredible talent!

Awesome and beautiful hub - This certainly is!

Once again your hubs have truly inspired us, so God bless you my friend!

Happy New Year and look forward to reading more inspiring hubs from you in 2011.

Wayne Brown profile image

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas

This is incredible work and something I would never have guessed was painted by human hands. It is so photo-like that I cannot find the human element in it. Maybe that is what lends to the appeal and mystic of it as the subject matter is rather commonplace. I can remember the painting of the Campbell's Soup Can by by the mid-60's artist O'Leary (I think! LOL!) but that was not even close in terms of the quality of the work. I understand your infatuation and your propensity toward the "wow" factor! Thanks for sharing! WB

Thanks very much for introducing me to this extraordinary young painter. I can't help but wonder what he'll be doing 20 years from now.

I saw above that drbj mentioned Andy Warhol, and I had also immediately thought of him upon viewing Martin's paintings. I also thought of Chuck Close, possibly the most well-known photorealist painter of the late 1960s and early 70s. For as exciting as Warhol and Close are, I think Martin might be even moreso.

Raven King 5 years ago from Cabin Fever

Looking at the paintings I would automatically think trompe-l'oeil because of the illusion although the term hyperrealism fits better due to the intensity of the focus.

The artist paints consumer goods which reminds me of Andy Warhol although done in this style suggests a theme of still life. I find your hub very interesting!!! :D
