Giant Sculptures Take Your Breath Away—Created By Artist Ron Mueck

Giant Sculptures Take Your Breath Away—Created By Artist Ron Mueck

Ron Mueck is a London-based photo-realist artist. Born in Melbourne, Australia, to parents who were toy makers, he worked on children’s television shows for 15 years before working in special effects for such various films.

Mueck then started his own company in London, making models to be photographed for advertisements. Eventually Mueck concluded that photography actually destroys the physical presence of the original object, and so he turned to fine art and sculpture.

Mueck’s work became world-famous when a poignant sculpture of his dead fathers small, naked body caused shock waves in the Royal Academy’S Sensation exhibition in 1997. The attention to detail and sheer technical brilliance of his figures are incredible, but it is Mueck’s use of scale that takes your breath away…
