The portraits by Jovan Balov are not realistic or naturalistic replicas. One of Balov`s artistic principles is to show the analytically founded enhancement of reality behind the surfaces. His hyperrealism emerges in his portraits especially by filling the personalities with life beyond their samples - photos, sculptures etc. - through his painting techniques.
