Hyperrealistic Paintings of decorative rugs covered in complex floral arrangements and patterns | Antonio Santin.

Each piece is composed of thousands of paint strokes that mimic the texture of a rug’s . Antonio Santin New York-based artist was born in Madrid, Spain in 1978, and graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid .

To achieve this level of intricacy, I now use pneumatic machinery. When compressed air pushes the oil paint inside a cartridge, a thin thread gets out of a fine tip. By controlling the speed of the output and the way it’s applied on the canvas, it is possible to shape oil paint into complex filigrees. Later, I apply a dark oil paint glazing, which not only produces the chiaroscuro that creates the trompe l’oeil, it also serves as a patina that highlights all the sculptural relief in the painting.

You can see more of his rug paintings on his website and Instagram.
