Jason de Graaf was born in Montreal in 1971 and lives and works in Quebec, Canada. de Graaf uses photographs and infuses his works with detail and clarity that give them a separate life and presence. He describes his approach:
My paintings are about staging an alternate reality, the illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface, filtered so that it expresses my unique vision...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.
These amazing paintings definitely make me feel a sense of wonder and intrigue.
Unbelievably stunning. I am curious as to how the canvas is prepared to enable the smoothness that is required for such intricate detail and realism!
Wonderful strong brush with brilliantly color understanding
his painting is like hanging on a rock and dare not to challenge

Cant describe it. This guy is some superhuman.

I thought these were photographed at first, then I thought about where the camera would be positioned to avoid glare or reflection, then the words suddenly clicked in my brain.
