Hyperrealism



Here is a modern postcard for a change. I love the colours; pinks and greys with just a touch of yellow. “Jeune Homme au Plateau” –young man with platter - was painted by Christopher Harmon Cheung in 1986. He is a Hyperrealism painter.

The correspondence on the back is interesting too. Written by the father of the gallery owner wishing someone good luck. A hopeful artist looking for somewhere to exhibit his paintings perhaps?

It is nice to see that, today, also beautiful postcards are made, besides the "touristic" ones.

Did you notice that on the platter is a pair of heads? They don't look very yummy to me.

Peter: There are lots of beautiful modern postcards too. It's difficult to know where to stop.

Utenzi:I think that they are sheep's heads. Not my idea of a feast either.
