'HYPER-REALISTIC PAINTINGS' BY YRJO EDELMANN

19.6.14

Yrjö Edelmann is one of Sweden's best-known artists, abroad. He became famous with the Absolut Vodka advertising campaign, wrapping the vodka bottle in coloured silk paper and taped it with masking tape. Lately his "parcels" have developed more and more complicated and ambiguous compositions of several boxes wrapped in bright paper. He combines the classical tradition of the old masters with an enigmatic contemporary image world. Edelmann is the great illusionist in Swedish contemporary art.

  1. This work of Yrjö Edelmann remember me the latest work of the chilean artist Claudio Bravo, who worked with the concept of hyper realism. Please, take a look of this http://www.claudiobravo.com/obras2010.html
