Brooklyn-based painter and surfer Ran Ortner makes remarkable photo-realistic oil paintings of ocean waves. The sea has always been his passion in life. His career took a big turn after he walked away with the inaugural ArtPrize in 2009 with his artwork named Open Water No. 24, an immense realistic oil painting of waves. Here are some of his greatest works.
There is also a documentary about his work in the making. You can watch a preview here:
