Majority of the time photo-realistic painters came up because photo-realism originated in oil paintings which artists created when rejecting photography to create large scale images as art. I have taken a lot of notes on photo-realism which I will be scanning and uploading soon. I feel that in this modern time photo-realism has evolved in computer based software’s where real images can be taken and used as a base to give life to what may seem unreal on a daily basis. I will explain what I mean when I post further research of artists who portray what I am trying to describe. So far I have found oil paintings which were created to represent realism and photo-realism.
