Sydney-based artist Alex Seton creates these super-realistic sculptures of our everyday clothes – from cozy hooded sweatshirts to soft-looking t-shirts and sports costumes – from solid marble. It’s really incredible how the artist can take a piece of cold, solid material and turn it into warm- and comfy-looking fabric with subtle folds and creases.

We wrote about Ron Mueck’s hyperrealistic human sculptures three years ago, and now he is back with three more incredible works. Mueck never rushes the scrupulous process – the sculptures, called “Young Couple,” “Woman with Shopping Bags” and “Couple under an Umbrella” took him two years to create. They will be on exposition in Paris at the Fondation Cartier through September 29.
A Dutch artist Bert Simons takes paper folding art into the whole new level by creating these hyper-realistic 3D paper sculptures, and the best part is that you can build a 3D Bert portrait yourself! Print the 12 pages on thick (80 grams) paper and start making your own personal Bert.
While many artists strive to glamorize, and portray our world to be better than it actually is, others simply find art in our ordinary lives and our simple bodies. Mueck is one of those artists, and is now well known for his sculptures where he portrays humans at key stages in the life cycle, from birth through middle age, to death.
