Yasutomo Oka was born in the Aichi prefecture, Japan in 1983 and graduated from Tama Art University in 2006. He is so successful in hyperrealism that his paintings can’t be distinguished from photographs. While Oka says there are real-life models for the women he paints, their actual appearance is merely the starting point from which he makes alterations to arrive at the image he wants to create. For more check out his blog and Twitter.
