Hyperrealistic Paintings of Sunbathing Beauties

Originally from Taiwan, Hilo Chen is a Brooklyn-based photorealist painter whose work is obsessed with the female form — particularly when clad in a teeny weenie bikini. He’s also almost 70 years old… Fight off the winter chill (seriously, it supposed to snow this afternoon) and click through to check out more of his sun-kissed beach bunnies. You’ll almost swear you can smell the tanning oil.
