Oil portraits for women
New York artist Yigal Ozeri was born in Israel. There is so much hyper-realism in his painting style that the paintings with the highest level of detailing are overwhelming. It is necessary to carefully look at the canvases to believe that the master painstakingly drew them with a brush, and did not take them on a digital camera. Igal Ozeri is best known for cinematic portraits of young women. His paintings are exhibited at exhibitions around the world.
