Take a look at these hyperrealistic street art by artist MTO (short for Mateo), who is, by the way, one amazingly ultra talented hyperrealistic graffiti and street artist.  Typically, hyperrealistic images are larger than the original photos, maybe 10 to 20 times larger than the original ones.

MTO has worked in France and Berlin, but his exact whereabouts remain unknown–he was also able to keep his identity and informations about himself a secret.

His larger-than-life murals and portraits have become his signature, and regularly stop passers-by dead in their tracks. He has worked in France and Berlin, but like a lot of street artists, his whereabouts remain unknown apart from the little info that he was born in France and worked most of his life in Berlin…

See the photos below for some of his artworks, totally astonishing and wonderfully created!

This got to be one of my favorites. :)
