Hyperreal photoreal painting

On the Saturday arts and crafts market in San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza, there is an artist who paints and sells his work from inside a small cart. His specialty is making "photorealistic" reproductions of celebrity photos and passers-by. Based on the nude on the left though, it seems that some of his models may live in the Uncanny Valley. I rather like this artwork though and next time may ask if it's for sale. Click the image to see it larger. LINK: Boingboing
