In this day and age, whenever we see something too good to be true, we think of Photoshop. However, very rarely we come across visuals which seem to be true and almost believable, but then we realize on a second look that they are not. If someone were to tell me that the people in these pictures weren’t real, I’d laugh in their face. A London artist named Ron Mueck specializing in sculptures created these weird masterpieces. He used to be a model maker and puppeteer for television and films (for example, he created Ludo the gentle giant in Labyrinth). Now, he focuses on making hyper-realistic sculptures of humans that have museum visitors staring for hours thinking “wtf, is that real?”. It’s like Madame Tussaud museum of normal people.
How does he do it?
His process begins by him sculpting clay.
It ends with hyper-realistic art like this. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think this is just a picture of a couple together.
The most interesting thing about Ron’s work is that no matter how nonsensical or strange the dimensions or placement of the people are, they still look REAL.
Some of his art is very heartwarming.
But he doesn’t limit himself to that.
He isn’t known for doing interviews or making statements.
He just lets his art speak for itself.
The level of detail on the finished sculptures is hard to wrap one’s mind around.
He even created a likeness of himself as an oversized mask.
This is Mueck at work.
He was behind Ludo the ‘Gentle Giant’ on the 1986 film Labyrinth.
Comment if you think these are better done than what we have seen in Madame Tussaud’s Museum. Personally, I think they were better. If you were impressed by Mueck’s masterpeices, share this article.
