Both Photorealist Art and Pop Art feature recognizable imagery that is heavily based on consumer culture. * Photorealist paintings usually are commonplace objects or scenery, and sometimes portraits. * Photorealist paintings are usually quite large, often depicting objects many times larger that they actually are in real life. These paintings are usually done in oil or acrylic. Candy Colors , (2007) Thaneeya McArdle Pink Cupcake , (2007) Thaneeya McArdle Photorealism
