From these studies Art is takes you further into your Art development and emerging within the contemporary art stage by introducing Hyper-realism to artists in training who have completed Art Is's Basic Fundamentals. This natural process towards Hyper-realism elevates the Art of the real to a place where the reality of life and the reality of art blends together to pay homage not just to the powerful and transformative nature of the techniques in the making of art but in unearthing the inseparable beauty between Art, Culture and Life.
