33-year-old Patrick Kramer is the artist behind these two mesmerizing, hyper realistic paintings of women floating in mid-air.
In his first painting, called Gravity, a blond woman in a bright yellow dress lies in front of wallpaper made of skulls. A commissioned piece for a collector, Kramer liked the concept so much that he created Lifting the Shroud to complement the work. "In my mind, the floating signifies a different state of being, and gives the figures a dream-like quality that I find compelling," he told My Modern Met.
Kramer graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Studio Arts. The Springville, Utah-based artist says hyper realistic art suits his personality since he can "be a bit of a perfectionist and "a little OCD."
In addition to human figures, Kramer has a gift for painting photorealistic images of flowers, insects, and fish.
