It’s widely known that art exists to imitate life and its tiniest details. However, sometimes you look at a painting and question if Oscar Wilde was right when he said that art imitates life, when in fact, it seems that life imitates art instead. Some artists make their paintings so unbelievably real that you end up looking at their work many, many times.
