Cottages 1890 by Vincent Van Gogh
"They didn't know it was impossible, so they did it"
Gustavo Silva Nuñez is an astonishingly talented artist from Valencia, Venezuela, who paints people in water with meticulous accuracy. He paints men and women in soothing and dreamy pools, tubs, and seas. His perfect mastery of shading and highlighting, as well as the water’s swirls, bubbles, and distortion, makes the paintings look incredibly real. The artist pushes the boundaries between reality and painting even further by interacting with his paintings and playfully posing as if the people he painted were really there beside him.
