If you’ve ever observed renaissance-era portraits, you probably thought you could have been looking at a photograph. Raphael’s La Velata for example gives you a glimpse into the life of a person we knew very little about -yet we feel like we might know more about them because of how well the artist captured their personality. Well, if you thought those paintings were amazing, get ready to be absolutely floored by this artist’s work! Because you might not quite believe his paintings aren’t real!
Artist Emanuele Dascanio paints ultra-realistic pictures using renaissance art techniques.
