Giant Hyperrealistic Paintings Of Candy Wrapped In Plastic By Roberto Bernardi

Anyone with a sweet tooth will instantly love this work by Italian artist Roberto Bernardi. Viewers will be shocked by the collection of candy still life images when they learn that these aren’t photographs, they are actually hyperrealistic oil paintings on canvas. The delicious details are astonishing and it’s hard to believe that these images aren’t recorded with a camera.
Bernardi started painting at a very young age and dedicated his studies to the learning of pictorial techniques. His initial artistic inclination was painting landscapes and portraits but it was his experimentation and foray into the hyperrealistic technique that came to define his style. His process involves separating elements of his compositions which are photographed through a colored filter, adding to the hyperrealistic rendering. The photograph is then transformed into a painting using traditional oil-on-canvas techniques.
Each still life, which boasts a variety of treats like old fashioned candy sticks, jelly rings, lollipops, candy canes, and bubblegum, features the glossy reflections of candy on the countertop, the crinkles of cellophane wrapping around lollipops, and even the fine touches of sugar crystals covering the surface of the jelly candies.
After seeing this work, don’t be surprised by the sudden craving for something sweet.
