Valerio Carrubba is a hyper realist painter. His images are anatomically accurate, showing his peaceful patients with their internal organs exposed. Shocking, realistic and at the same time extremely surreal. Valerio uses a double painting technique and overlapping brush strokes to create these extremely vivid, super surreal images. Thank you to Guillermo Bernal for the heads up on this one.
