Canadian artist Kit King paints extremely hyper-realistic portraits, capturing the delicate details and emotional expressions of her subjects. In the series of paintings below, you can literally see the narratives of human emotions beautifully depicted in deep, melancholic gaze. Yep, the eyes say it all.

Born November 29th, 1987, of two artist parents, I was raised with significant creative influence. I’ve witnessed the affect art had on their lives, and naturally kept art close to me throughout the years. Currently living in rural Ontario, where I was raised, I spend my days painting full time with my husband, Oda. With more works becoming collaborative efforts, we are working toward amalgamating ourselves. Marrying not just our lives, but our works.
Through a focus on hyperrealism, my paintings are reflections of the ephemeral visual relationships around us. Capturing fleeting moments that affect our emotional state from a singular glance, under the aegis of a heightened sense of reality.
