JKB Fletcher is an Australia-based painter and photographer whose work in photorealism is fast becoming a sensation. These captivating paintings each take about a hundred hours to make. Fletcher first selects a photograph from the numerous one he’s taken and begins the long and tedious process of applying less than a millimeter thick oil paint over canvas or linen. Fletcher’s work addresses the question of whether photorealism is anything more than a photograph with oil-based paint.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
