Haphazardly Wrapped

These are paintings. Yes, paintings! Super hyperrealistic oil paintings by Swedish artist Yrjö Edelmann, in fact. After staring and scrutinizing each piece, it’s hard to believe each work is actually two dimensional – I almost have to see it to believe it. In the meantime, I’ll just have to trust the illusion . . .

  4. If you didn’t mention that these are paintings I would have never guessed.

    These are exactly like Claudio Bravo’s paper wrapping paintings. While beautifully done, it’s not at all impressive that this artist is doing such a direct rip-off of another artist’s work.
