I’ve posted links to the fantastic art of Ron Mueck, a hyper-realistic sculptor who does giant pieces that look like real human beings. Well there are more sculptors like him and here is a bunch of them. Really incredible stuff.
I like how most of these pieces are of very ordinary looking people. They often look exactly like people you’d see in life, even though a few of them tend to go into caricature, slightly.
It’s very hard to not see Duane Hanson’s pieces as real people. He’s been doing this kind of stuff since the 1960s.
