Australian artist Ron Mueck uses resin, fiberglass, silicone, and many other materials to create hyperrealistic sculptures that look extremely lifelike aside from the often outrageous scale. Mueck’s work, first shown in 1996 in London and most recently exhibited in Latin America, has been seen all over Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania. These grotesque representations of humanity are especially interesting since Mueck began his career making puppets for a children’s show in Australia in the early 80s. Let’s just be glad that whoever created the Lady Elaine Fairchilde puppet on Mr. Rogers isn’t making giant hyperrealistic sculptures.Timothy A. Clary/AFP/Getty Images
