Matt Story is a talented artist that has a unique eye for hyper-realism. Hyper-realism is pretty much self explanatory, it's a genre of painting or sculpture that resembles a high resolution photograph, something that is more than evident in Matt's 'Water' series.
Here is a quote from Matt himself;
"I try to paint contemporary life as to capture crystals of pristine memory that we all share but never describe to one another."
You will literally go through his paintings not believing that they are just that... paintings.
