Artist Hirothropologie has
devoted himself to creating photorealistic paintings that are
spectacularly detailed. Every freckle is emphasized along with each
strand of hair. As for the clothing that he portrays, all embellishments
are intricately represented and help to add a sense of texture. “I put
my entire life in it,” the painter admits.
Using a set of precise tools, the artist meticulously creates
brushstrokes that are indistinguishable and colors that are true to
life. It’s this commitment that makes the creative’s portraits as
lifelike as they are. Overall, Hirothropologie’s subjects look as though
they’re about to step out of his large-scale canvases and become a part
of the real world.
This Lolita flower child naivety that everyone wants to paint young women as, I think that kind of mentality has to go away. We need to see young women as strong and full of potential, and when they’re experimenting you need to forgive them for their mistakes.
