Amazing hyper-realist sculptor - an Australian

Ron Mueck is an Australian hyper-realist sculptor working in the UK. His incredible sculptures of creepy, grotesque, mottled skin and uncannily gigantic proportional figures have adorned the Millennium Dome as well as Charles Saatchi’s living room for a number of years now. It would be fair to say, Mueck’s one of the leading contemporary artists of today.

And how much cash do you reckon he has recieved from various govt grants etc?

Probably absolutely zero. With talent like that, who needs to suck on the government tit? What a great link.
