Duane Hanson's Realistic Sculptures

Realistic ArtDuane Hanson was an American artist based in South Florida, a sculptor known for his lifecast realistic works of people, cast in various materials, including polyester resin, fiberglass, Bondo and bronze.

Hanson chose to sculpt working class citizens, unremarkable people going about their business transformed into highly complex works of art – he gave these overlooked, generalized people a singular identity, highlighting their activities and societal roles.

Hanson is recognized as one of the most accomplished hyper-real sculptors ever. More examples of his realistic sculptures after the jump. Click on images for larger views.
