Trust me when I say this – all is not as it seems with the paint covered faces below. You might not think it when looking at the first four pictures, but what you’re looking at is actually one of the most incredible things I’ve seen in a long time. Mind-blowing art in fact. Check this out.
You’re probably wondering what is so impressive about someone covering his face in paint.
But trust me, there is something amazing going on here.

…Whoa! Yep, those previous pictures were not photos of a man with paint on his face, but they were actually incredible hyperrealistic oil paintings (of a man with paint on his face).
