French-Italian Painter Matteo Mezzetta created a series of hyper realistic paintings, executed in oil on canvas.
Matteo Mezzetta lives and works between Lyon and Milan and his impressive paintings are so realistic, than the viewer can barely distinguish them from a photograph. He captures people, animals, machines, even whole sceneries of everyday life, which are reproduced with stunning detail. He has a taste for movement and finds beauty in everyday life. Although some of his paintings appreciate the stillness of objects, it is those paintings that portray people and animals which fascinate viewers the most.

Mezzetta’s style also has an integral element of modernity, as he is mostly capturing moments set-up in contemporary environments. Check out more of his impressive work after the jump.
