Artist Philipp Weber tells the stories that move him, using a hyperrealist style. Realism, pop, composition and an attempt to find an inner truth determine the artist's approach, which places women at the heart of his cyclical works. Like Mel Ramos, Philipp Weber depicts the artificiality and the clich駸 of the fashion and advertising world. His young women pose as if for a photo shoot for a glossy magazine, providing a blank canvas for men's dreams, thus picking up on a traditional artistic theme. But Philipp Weber shows more than that: he brings his models to life, releasing them from the artificiality and rigidity of the master image, going under their skin, exposing irregularities in apparent perfection and revealing aspirations and great dreams.

PROJECTS

HYUNDAI TV SPOT

Hyundai Motor Company has linked up with hyper realistic artist, Philipp Weber, to produce a unique series of pictures depicting the company窶冱 luxury flagship sedan, the new 2014 Centennial. The advertisement, which was shot in Berlin, Germany, shows the process by which Weber recreated key aspects of the Centennial through a series of seven paintings. Set to the soft tone of piano and string instruments, it concludes with an overlap between Weber窶冱 paintings and the actual Centennial. It is currently being shown on a number of TV channels in the Middle East. German-born Weber is a world-renowned artist in a new genre of painting called hyper-realism. Normally he specialises in depicting humans, which are considered the most difficult subjects to paint realistically. With his signature style, Weber created seven paintings of the New 2014 Centennial conveying a sense of realism that can only be matched by photography, it said.
