Amazing Sculptures for Special Effects by Ron Mueck

Since I'm living in Australia, I'm much more interested in the culture of this country. And thinking about that, I remembered I never posted nothing about Ron Mueck here. And he really deserves this post.

Mueck is an Australian hyperrealist sculptor currently working in the United Kingdon, but he also worked in USA.

He produced to advertising industry, but what I want to highlight here is his work for the cinema and television.

He began his career on the Australian children's TV Show Shirl's Neighborhood, making puppets for the show.

And after sometime he started to work with special effects for cinema and TV, collaborating with the effects for Muppet Show and Sesame Street in USA and after, Dreamchild and Labyrinth in London.

His work is amazing and I'd love to see his sculptures, but I haven't had the opportunity yet.
