Belgium-based artist Christiane Vleugels is a talented illustrator who creates incredibly lifelike paintings of human figures and faces.
The artist, who has been drawing from a very young age, has mastered her techniques in order to produce these extremely realistic depictions of people.
Her skilled use of light and shadow creates such detail that viewers may think they are looking at a photograph.
Upon closer inspection, viewers might notice the blended strokes of oil paint across canvas which are faintly present, although not easy to find amid the sharp contrast of fine and flowing hair or the distinct definition of a muscular back.
The collection of hyper-realistic oil paintings are an endless journey into Vleugels’ imagination and the artist says, “The sole purpose of my work is to tempt people to dream. There is nothing I love more than to move my audience to ecstasy by allowing them a peek into my fantasy.”
