Caravaggio's hyper-realism, a magician's conjuring trick, I have come to regard as a perfect metaphor for great art, which declines to make obvious its deepest truths, leaving us to decipher them if we can.

Hyperrealism can create an atmosphere of Surrealism because nobody sees the world in such detail.

Salman Rushdie
Hyperrealism is more about objectifying... how an object can be portrayed when it is seen through a camera's lens... all my paintings are about an object being viewed through human eyes.

Liu Dan
I have found my own style of painting, which is called “Metaphysical Hyper-realism”.

Salvador Dali
Hyperrealism is both breathtaking, and boring. I want to see the artist's hand in the work of art. I want to see the essence and the spirit of the subject, and I want to see a celebration of the medium in the work of art.
