MARC SIJAN – World Leader For Realism in Sculpture
This is the story of a Milwaukee man, an extremely talented sculptor whose works are found all over the world and who in fact is rated Number One in his genre, yet is better known in cities of Europe, Asia and The Middle East than he is right here in his own home town.
His name is Marc Sijan. His Artform is Hyper Realism
Most People relate the art of sculpture, and especially the sculpture of the human body, with the works of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Such as the Venus de Milo and Michelangelo’s David. There are, however, other types of sculpture depicting the human form. One of them is called “Hyper Realistic” sculpture. If you were ever fortunate enough to observe, up close, works such as the Venus de Milo and David, you’d probably be very impressed with their beauty and workmanship. But you would never think of them as looking exactly like the humans they depicted. Conversely, if you were to view Hyper Realistic sculpture up close, you’d be absolutely amazed. The sculpture would look exactly like a human being. In fact you likely wouldn’t completely believe your eyes and would reach out and touch it to make sure it was alive.
