Introduction

Opera Gallery is proud to present 'Beyond Reality', a collective exhibition of world-leading hyperrealist artists, including internationally acclaimed Valter Casotto, Mike Dargas, Lee Jung Woong, Nicolae Maniu, Marc Sijan, Tigran Tsitoghdzyan, John Humphreys, and Yigal Ozeri.

'Beyond Reality' features artworks that challenge the viewers' perception, making them question whether what they are looking at is real life or art.

Since the time of the ancient Greeks, Western art has often pursued realism. With the rise and fame of abstract painting in the 20th century, such aspiration became, arguably, less desirable. From the late 1960s there was a return in popularity of highly realistically rendered painting. The term ‘hyper-realism’ was established at that time to define the rebirth of such high fidelity realism in art. This movement has since greatly developed in Europe and America and it continues to enthral, perplex and amuse art lovers all over the world.
