Disturbing ultra realistic sculptures by Sam Jinks - NetDost.com

Sam Jinks is an Visual artist from Australia who is known for creating highly realistic sculptures. These sculptures made from resin, fiber glass and silicone are so detailed that its hard to tell them from the real thing. The artist gives great attention to detail and uses real hair for his sculptures. I especially liked the idea behind the man with blurred mouth, blurring thats typical to electronic media or digital imagery is mixed with something that very touchable and real. The sculptures by Sam Jinks creates uneasiness due to sudden exposure to realities around us which we often tend to ignore. Sam began his career as a puppet maker on television before taking to fine art.
