“Avatar Sculpture Works represents the works of Hyper-Realist sculptors Jamie Salmon and Jackie K. Seo.” You might be familiar with ex-movie FX artist Jamie Salmon’s work but he has since taken on a studio partner with another hyper-realist Korean born sculptor Jackie K. Seo. Brace yourself for amazing works of art that are spectacularly realistic.
Victor Rodriguez is a painter who was born in Mexico City but currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He paints some fantabulous paintings that use hyper-realism to a rather awe-inspiring degree. His website is nuts and bolts but that’s no matter considering his inspiring talent. I can only imagine the impact of his work in person.
Liam Kemp is a pioneer of sorts. For several years now he has been attempting to achieve an unparalleled level of realism in 3D that few have been able to achieve. He is currently working on a project titled, “The Normals” that is now 4 years into production. The animation test above is further proof that he is closing in on that final gap between seamless human realism in 3D animation. It’s mindblowing work and really makes you wonder what is next.
