Photo-realism is a specialized branch of art where the artist develops a painting by referring photographs.  If you are amazed about  photo-realistic art, you have to take the photograph of the desired topic.

The paintings of Luigi Benedicenti were rooted deeply into the old still-life values of Europe. But he developed his own unique style which was often called as “extreme realism”. His oil paintings were the actual representation of contemporary Italian patisserie, drinks, and ice creams. Luigi’s style and multicolored reflections in the paintings were the results of superior skill and years of hard work.
