Paul Cadden’s emotional hyperrealism

Paul Cadden (1964) is a Scottish-born hyperrealist artist who creates intimidatingly realistic artworks using only graphite and chalk. He has been drawing since the age of six and has always been fascinated with emotion portrayed through literal illustrations of a particular scene or subject.

“Although the drawings and paintings I make are based upon a series of photographs, video stills etc, the art created from the photo is used to create a softer and much more complex focus on the subject depicted, presenting it as a living tangible object. These objects and scenes in my drawings create the illusion of a new reality not seen in the original photo.”
