Mike Dargas was born in 1983 in Cologne and he responsible for these huge photo realistic oil paintings. They are so good, at first when I saw the photos of him painting on the canvases they confused me a bit, because I didn’t realise how big they actually were. I can’t believe how much detail and accuracy goes into each one. You would think on a bigger scale it would be more obvious that they were paintings and not photographs, but that is not the case. They are so well done they almost bring tears to my eyes.
