Not everything is always what it appears to be.
Just take a look at the hyper-realistic sculptures below, created with such precision that you can barely distinguish reality from fantasy.
Here is a collection of some of the best and most impressive masterpieces from the exhibition Hyperrealist Sculpture 1973-2016 at the Museum of Bellas Artes de Bilbao in Spain.
No, that isn’t a real homeless man lying here.
The sculpture, made of silicone and real hair, was created by Peter Land from Denmark.
Pay attention to the details of this woman’s feet, nails and face. Is it not incredible?
It’s scary how real her feet look!
And look at the picture below… the details are so realistic, it’s absurd!
All the ‘people’ in this exhibition were created out of silicone.
One of the most famous sculptures is “Grandmother with her grandson,” by Sam Jinks from Australia.
Jinks worked both as an illustrator as well as a silicone artist within the film industry.
He has become known for his incredibly detailed sculptures of humans, where he works on creating silicone figures of different ages to show how fragile humans can actually be.
What an incredible job he did with the below, don’t you agree?
American Carole A. Feuerman’s “General’s Twins” is also a masterpiece.
At the beginning of her career, Feuerman often used water as a symbol for the search for inner harmony.
Look at the beautiful, artificial water drops on the model. Impressive!
Serbian Marc Siljan is another masterful sculptor exhibiting at Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao.
He works extensively with real models and a magnifying glass, to ensure that his creations are as realistically human as possible.
Zarko Baseski, from Macedonia, focuses on the challenges of life through “intense emotional models”.
“Ordinary Man” was built between 2009-2010 and is made of fiberglass, silicone and polyester.
Just incredible, isn’t it?
What do you think about these sculptures? I was in any case incredibly impressed and applaud these amazing artists for their talent!
