An artist has stunned people around the world with his hyper-realistic paintings that look just like photos. Young Sung Kim is a 43-year-old artist, originating from Korea and currently living in New York. Young started painting 20 years ago as a fine arts student. Young takes 3 to 10 months to make each canvas, and they sell for around £8,000. He hopes one day to have his own solo exhibition in a major international museum.

Most of Young's inspiration is drawn from nature and city life around him.
