Ron Mueck: the world’s premier human giant maker

Ron Mueck (b. 1958) is a world famous Australian sculptor working in Great Britain who has had his work displayed in art museums around the world.

Possibly his most famous work is Boy, the 15 feet tall giant, located at the Aros museum, Aarhus, Denmark.

Look at the detail of the boy’s foot. That’s what we call hyperrealist!

And how about this giantess in bed?

However, needless to say, the nature of much of his work is such that it will never be featured in Malaysian museums. There are naked or almost naked giants, anatomically correct and complete with bodily hair. There is also a sculpture of a woman who has just given birth, with her baby on her stomach. It was just too…. graphic.
