Diego Gravinese [Contemporary Artist]

Photorealism is a artistic movement in which the artist gathers information from photographs and paints a picture that looks as realistic as the photograph itself.

Some people question the reason for this type of art. If it looks so much like a photograph, why not just use the photograph as the art? I think in this case it is not so much the subject of the piece that is meant to impress but rather the technique and time involved in making the piece. It is more about the artist than the artwork. Here are some other examples of photorealism:
