Kassan’s hyper-realistic mural portraits

David Jon Kassan is a contemporary American painter who is famous for his life-size, hyper-realistic mural portraits. He combines figurative subjects with the rough textures of age-worn urban interiors in her paintings.

His paintings shows an amazing naturalistic accuracy that only can comes from a careful and deeply observation which is combined traditional technique and anatomical study. By this way, he gives a touch of realism and aliveness to his works thus he creates super realistic paintings. Kassan presently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York and teaches painting classes and takes a place in workshops at various organizations around the world. He exhibits his work from 1997 and he has been awarded with many honors. Enjoy his glorious work..

  1. these paintings are very striking and beautiful, i enjoyed them very much. he painted like a photograph but also added his own flavour which in my opinion is a little bit scary but that’s why i liked them very much. i loved the grungy texture.
