Ron Myek is a hyperrealistic artist. He opened a gallery of his incredible sculptures in London. The works describe people, in absolute precision and huge scales – their gestures, emotions, and somewhere – their ugliness. If you have weak nerves, you’d better not watch this. Full news has a little information about Myek and his works, and also all the pictures I was able to find.
Myek started out as a doll-maker for TV-shows and movies. Now he makes sculptures of people from sylicone, emphasizing the irreality of sizes.
Ron Myek was born in 1958 in Melbourn, Australia, and his family was from Germany. The boy has played with dolls since he was little, and they were dolls he made for himself. In 1986 he started working in London, thinking of TV-characters for Sesame Street and Muppet-Show.
ron Myek has worked with glassfiber before, and his sculptures were made in the same way as the yachts. Now he prefers silicone skin, rubber, painting, and he personally makes holes in the heads of his creations for them to have hair. His sculptures amaze with the precision of details of the human body. In Europe people would stand in lines for days to look at his expo of giants and the muppets. Essentially, Myek does very simple things. But people go crazy about his expos, although everybody is used to wax figures’ museums. It’s the scale that is impressive.
