The Hyperrealistic Sculptures Of Ron Mueck [Pic]

London-based sculptor Ron Mueck, formerly a model maker and puppeteer for children”s television and films, has been creating fine art sculptures since 1996. Using resin, fiberglass, silicone, and many other materials, Mueck constructs hyperrealistic likenesses of human beings, while playing with scale. The detailed sculptures are captivating when viewed up close, as they may be many times larger or smaller than expected.

Modern day Michelangelo. NSFWish

    "That is in no way "hyper realistic"."

    Of course it is. It is the very definition of hyperrealism.

    Just because you can do something, that doesn`t mean you should.

    "I" might not call it art but that doesn`t mean it isn`t art.

    Remember when "art" was pretty?
    Well, at least this guy does have some obvious talent. It`s way better than the poop-papier-mache you see at most museums nowadays.

    Those are very cool!
    It is slightly disturbing when the reality of the size clashes with the realism of the sculpture.
