My interest in arts and paintings has stumbled me upon these stunning canvas paintings that look like real photographs. The Daily Mail has reported on Saturday, June 9, 2012 that the artist behind this mind-blowing work is a canadian whose name is Jason de Graaf. Mr. de Graff's incredible paintings appear as a still-life work and often they illusion you as if they are computer generated work. But No! they are original arcylic paintings painstakingly drawn on canvas keeping magical use of focus and reflected lights.

In an interview with Poets & Artists magazine, Mr.de Graff described his work as his matter of of perception about the world while focusing on creating the 'illusion of verisimilitude'. His paintings were represented by the Plus One Gallery and Galerie de Bellefeuille in London and Montreal, respectively.

Sharingthe message that his magical paintings hold, Mr. de Graff said: 'Though I use photographs as the image source, my goal is not to reproduce of document faithfully what I see, but to create an illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs.'About relatinship of light with his paintings, the canadian artist added:'Many of my paintings are about the relationship of light with reflective and transparent surfaces and my journey to understand those qualities and convey my sense of wonder and intrigue over them. Lately I have been trying to imbue my paintings with a sense of narrative and lyricism.'
