It looks like a photo of a beautiful woman. But look closer… I’m speechless!


Marco Grassi is a promising young talent in the field of hyper-realistic painting who does most of his work in Milan, Italy. This style of painting has really caught on in recent years. The "photographic" quality of his artworks astounds people - they are flawless down to every last detail.

Take this one for example: my goodness, it really seems impossible that this is a painting.

Grassi's specialty lies in his unique talent to apply minute details that are so faithful to reality, they almost elicit disbelief in viewers. Bodies appear to be made of porcelain or carved into wood and some are even adorned with sophisticated patterns, embroidery, or crochet.

"I love to explore the relationship between inner and outer, the latter represented in my paintings through sterile, inanimate elements," says Marco. Many of his paintings feature landscapes or details that seem to be one with the woman's body, transforming them into fascinating hybrid creatures.

He has a knack for capturing depths of emotion and communicating inner feelings of his subjects. Combining various textures with such realistic portraits results in such highly poetic, visionary paintings. Don't you agree?
