Sam Jinks

This post was meant to be about Patricia Piccinini, and her amazing sculptures. But after some googleing, I found out that she in fact didn’t create the amazing sculptures above, they were created by a guy named Sam Jinks. I couldn’t find a lot of information out about him, just some random articles, but it looks like he creates all of Piccinini’s sculptures for her.

His style is a lot like Ron Mueck’s, with his sculptures carrying an insane amount of detail, to the point of where you’re not sure if it’s real or not. Jinks grew up with comic books and then eventually became interested in anatomy, which ended up fueling his love for sculpting.

I threw a couple more of his amazing creations under the cut, so be sure to check those out too.
