Artists that produce photorealistic sculptures , for the most part, aim to show us our bodies and life as it really is.
Technically, artists who strive for a high resolution level of detail in painting or sculpture are called “hyperrealists” , although all hyperrealists are also considered to be photorealists.
Every detail is slavishly recreated as close to the real life model as possible, even if the sculpture is larger than the original scale.
Photorealistic sculptors create truly amazing sculptures that will make you feel wonder, revulsion and the sense of looking in someone else’s mirror.
Vancouver sculptor Jamie Salmon uses human hair to help accentuate his photorealistic sculptures.
Together with fellow artist Jackie K. Seo, they form Avatar Sculpture Works. Salmon uses a complex, multi-stage process to create each piece that can take weeks to months to acheive the realistic details that he is known for.
