No! That isn’t a photograph. Look closer and you’ll be blown away. Astonishing.


Scott Paul Cadden has raised the art of hyper-realistic painting to a completely new level. How he manages to capture reality with the help of a pencil and a canvas, and how he makes them look like a sharp photo, is unparalleled. He slaves over each of his works for 3 to 6 weeks. His fan community is growing constantly and in order to get an original you sometimes have to pay up to 8,000 dollars. But these pictures are worth every cent!



Paul Cadden specializes in human portraits.


How he manages to capture reality with a pencil …


… is more than breathtaking.


Sometimes he dares to take on nature. The result speaks for itself.


The heart of Paul’s work is to portray people in their natural surroundings.


His special strength is highlighting the individual beauty of each person.


Sometimes his works are confusing anatomic studies. Just let yourself dive into the pictures and feel their power!

I simply can’t get enough of these impressive pictures. That is high art on a whole new level!


My eyes don’t want to believe what my brain is telling me: these are all handmade drawings. Are you also enraptured by them?

Share these singular pictures with all your friends. They won’t be able to get over their astonishment!
