What at first seems like a tiny indoors swimming pool…
Is actually a painting by Venezuela-based artist Gustavo Silva Nuñez.
This incredible artist creates hyperrealistic scenes of people floating, swimming, or even just sitting in water.
The pieces look so real they look like photographs that have been flawlessly taken.
His perfect mastery of shading and highlighting, as well as the water’s swirls and distortion, makes the paintings look incredibly real.
His paintings are so life-like that when he poses with them it looks like he is actually interacting with his subjects.
