Ron Mueck is a figurative sculptor whose works are included in significant collections around the world. He’s born in Melbourne in 1958 and spent his childhood spare time crafting figures. Started his career as a model maker and puppeteer for the television and film industries, entered the world of contemporary art in 1996 with his creations of figurative sculptures that appear to be real but are either smaller or significantly larger than the conventional human dimensions, the visual spectacle becomes even more baffling, and Mueck afterwards proceeded to exhibit with great success in London, Paris, New York, Sydney and then globally.
