Unlike other photorealistic painters, Walsh does not rely solely on a camera to prep for his paintings. He produces up to 100 sketches in order to recreate an urban scene, a process that can take up to three or four months, according to the blog Colossal. The work pays off in vivid, complex paintings that Walsh describes on his website:

"I am fascinated by the city, it’s visual complexity and constant state of flux. The act of painting is an attempt fix this information and give vision to our experience of living within it."

Walsh will be showing his work later this year at Bernarducci Meisel Gallery in New York. The tech-friendly artist has also been collaborating on an app called "Repentir" that allows users to explore the intermediary stages of a painting, so get ready to see more of his process in the months to come.
