Hyperrealistic Wax Sculptures Of Pop Culture Icons

Wax is a sculpting medium that can be used to create extremely realistic works, and as any visitor to one of the wax museums across the country know it’s the chosen medium for photorealistic sculpture, and wax works don’t come much better looking than the works of Bobby Causey.

Bobby is a self taught artist who has been creating incredibly realistic sculptures of movie characters like The Joker, Hellboy, and Jack Torrance from the Shining for private collectors and galleries for years, with finely painted detail, hand punched hair and just the right accessories to complete each character.

Bobby even created his own replica of the Batmobile from the 1995 movie Batman Forever, and it's every bit as spot on as his amazing sculptures.

Since you jumped on the bandwagon and used the term, I'd like to ask: what, exactly, do you mean by "hyper realistic"?

This is akin to saying: More real than reality. I just don't get it. It's such an internet term that has crowd appeal and absolute nonsensical logic behind it. One of the editors at a rather large art and design mag told me it was an authentic art term rooted in historic movements. Which is simply not true. It was coined online mid 2003.

To me these are realistic sculptures. If they were more realistic then I'd have to rethink the demarcation line of illusion vs. reality.
