Irakli Nadar is a digital artist from Georgia who makes incredible paintings which are so realistic that you might think they are photographs. You can follow his work on his Instagram account where he has gathered almost 80 thousand fans, and has tens of thousands of likes on each post.
“My main goal is to be less dependent on reference but also to maintain my personal style and the realism that goes along with it,” the artist shared on Bored Panda. “I like to experiment with different styles, but I don’t see myself changing since I believe that an artist should do whatever he or she is good at. […] I’ve spent years studying the human face and portraiture, and it would be careless to abandon all of that on a whim.”
Nadar plays with textures, lights, and shadows to achieve that super-realistic looks in his artworks. He paints only women who are his one and only muses.
