This Japanese Artist Creates Creepily Realistic Sculptures
Madame Tussauds who? This artist from Japan is creating some shockingly life-like sculptures and you won’t believe your eyes.
Kazuhiro Tsuji is an artist based in Kyoto and has been startling people with some creepily life-like sculptures. Kazuhiro constructs his paintings using platinum silicon, resin, and other materials and his collection includes precisely detailed 3-dimensional portraits of Salvador Dali, Abraham Lincoln, and Frida Kahlo.
“My aim is to sculpt portraits that go beyond capturing a likeness. I create these heads from the inside out, bringing to life the appearance of inner thought and emotion as I layer the silicone.”
— Kazuhiro Tsuji
His life-like sculptures may be new to you, but his makeup effects can be seen high-budget Hollywood movies including Planet of the Apes and Blade 3. Currently, he is working in Los Angeles where he is constructing a hyperrealist large-scale portrait.
