An Artist Shows What People in Famous Sculptures and Paintings Would Look Like in Real Life

4 years ago

South Korean artist Joongwon Jeong has a unique talent for turning pieces of art into hyperrealistic paintings. The details of each of his works are so precise and elegant, that it makes it easy to mix them up with photographs. The paintings of Van Gogh, the statue of Venus de Milo, and even The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo — are just a few of the art pieces that Joongwon has breathed new life into.

We at Bright Side were amazed by the artist’s talent and feel eager to share his most remarkable works, as well as photos of the artist, with you.
