Incredibly Realistic Sculptures by Adam Beane

Incredibly Realistic Sculptures by Adam Beane
Adam Beane is quite unique sculptor. Since beginning sculpting in 2002 he is known for dynamic compositions, action poses, nuanced drapery work and his ability to capture likenesses with expressions. For the work he uses CX5, a tremendously versatile material he developed which handles like clay when warm but is hard as plastic when cool. In this collection you will find mini copies of famous people and will be surprised how unbelievable realistic they look. Many of them were made for toys companies and may be you could find beautiful works of Adam Beane in supermarkets. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

Altered thrift store art: Some personal faves Unknown, via Reddit. Banksy, via Flickr user goldenticket.

The Beauty of Black Light “Light Me On” is an artistic series by Reka Nyari. Her work received 1st prize in category “Beauty: Pro” at the International Photography Awards. Notes about the artist (published at Flickr): “I always wanted to be a painter…I came to NYC when I was 17 to study Fine Arts at SVA… I sweated over large canvases, night after night, creating hyper realistic oil-paintings of nude men and women.

Race against the tide: Artist creates intricate masterpieces... that the sea washes away within hours By Eddie Wrenn Updated: 17:19 GMT, 27 July 2009 When artists see a canvas, most of them want to fill it, even if it's with nothing more than a doodle.
