Hyper-Realistic Artist Loops Himself into Infinity

Based in Indonesia, artist Veri Apriyatno creates the most amazing three-dimensional illustrations. His great success as an artist is evident in his extensive portfolio, which consists of a captivating collection of human forms drawn with intense detail. Apriyatno has produced six books about how to draw and he has definitely proven to be a master of the artform.

This series of hyperrealistic self-portraits mimc the style of artist M.C. Escher, where each monochromatic form continues from the previous in an exploration of infinity. It’s often difficult to identify where the drawing ends and the real artist begins. Apriyatno uses just a pencil to build the shadows and textures that result in the photorealistic drawings. His blacks, whites, and grays create an exaggerated contrast and an extreme depth to the work, and the playful final results are inventive and powerfully striking.
