These Giant Sculptures Are So Lifelike You’ll Swear They’re Real

Australian born hyperrealist artist, Ron Mueck, is known for his hyperrealistic sculptures and his incredible attention to detail. His life-sized, gigantic human sculptures can take up to two years to complete.

The London-based artist creates intimate expressions and aims to faithfully reproduce every minute detail of the human body. “I never made life-size figures because it never seemed to be interesting. We meet life-size people every day,” says Mueck.

The large scale sculptures are to create a jarring and disconcertingly visual image.

Mueck’s works has been featured in exhibitions around the world which include the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh Festival at the Royal Scottish Academy Building, the Modern Museum of Art in Forth Worth, Texas, and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.
