Matteo Mezzetta’s Hyperrealistic Paintings of DJs

Influenced by the film noir style of the 1930s and ’40s, Matteo Mezzetta puts a Hitchcock-inspired spin on DJ culture in his Noise series. Mezzetta, who is based in Milan, Italy, recreates photographs in his hyperrealistic style using only oil on canvas, so well in fact, that you have to look closely to spot the brushstrokes.
