I Thought These People Were Weird. Then A Closer Look Left Me Absolutely Speechless.
If someone were to tell me that the people in these pictures weren’t real, I’d laugh in their face. The truth of it is, though, they’re not. They are creations of a London artist named Ron Mueck, who specializes in sculptures. 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… I first came across Mueck when he exhibited some his amazing works in the newly designed Cumberland Hotel London. I became an instant fan. He is
truly UNBELIEVABLE. Here are some more of his incredible works for you to enjoy.
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.
