Artist Nathan Walsh makes hyper-realistic paintings of cityscapes that look pretty spectacular. And pretty real. 

He begins each piece using just a pencil and a ruler, and then the magic keeps a-brewing. Says the artist: "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."

His artworks are multi-layered which makes them all the more realistic – every angle and line and just-out-of-focus facet adds to the overwhelming feeling of depth and dimension. 

Walsh also uses plenty of mathematics in his paintings, so if anybody told you maths is useless, especially if you want to be an artist, that person could definitely be wrong. (That said, maths blows.)
