Hyperrealist Body Horror

Fábio Magalhães hyperrealist body horror painting

Warning: Contains graphic and disturbing images.

If you can manage to stare at these paintings by artist Fábio Magalhães long enough not to feel a bit queasy, then you will be able to appreciate the immense skill and detail that these works possess. And while the body horror content is shocking at first, it does have a purpose: Magalhães is exploring important themes such as animal cruelty through this photo-realist painting method.
