Just read through the points given here and you will know what we mean:

The detailing: The one thing that will strike you foremost when you look at these hyper realistic paintings is the sheer amount of detailing that the artist has portrayed. Though many details are visible to the eye of the camera, we think that the detailing given in these paintings far surpasses any picture that can be captured by the camera. What is more, in many instances pictures produced by cameras can be manipulated to remove some details which is not the case with these paintings.

Exaggerated reality: There is an element of exaggerated reality in the concept of hyper realism that may seem like contradiction but absolutely true. Like for instance, we look at everyday things without really seeing the details, but the artists who are into hyper realism show these to us in all their beauty and detailing that with our busy lives we could have easily missed.

Amalgamation: The best part of a hyper realistic painting is that it is an amalgamation of reality around us with the fertile imagination of an artist’s eye. This amalgamation is what adds that extra dimension to the painting. The whole concept of this way of painting comes into its own when you see how an artist portrays things like skin. We often see skin as smooth and not with too many characteristics but an artist’s eye will show you the shades and textures of skin very clearly.

The next level: The thing about hyperrealism and the art that is produced based on this concept, is that it takes something real and takes it to the next level. We know that reality is just that – reality. However, when you look at the way these artists have taken reality and made it even more real, you will realize that even something real has many levels just waiting to be discovered.
