Amazing Hyperreal Sculptures of Evan Penny
Artist Evan Penny was born 1953 BirthElim, South Africa. Lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Walking into a room full of artist Evan Penny’s sculptures is like walking into a room full of people. His lifelike, almost real figures seem ready to engage museum-goers in casual conversation. He makes the kind of sculpture that is so realistic, so detailed, and so obviously a display of skill that it literally stops people in their tracks. But this alone isn’t why the artist’s work grabs the viewer. He pushes the boundaries of representation by creating eerily hyper-real sculptures that will make you do a double take. They making them hyper-realistic and yet disturbingly off. His each sculpture has a distinct personality.
