is a Milwaukee-based sculptor. He creates incredibly hyperrealistic sculptures depicting ordinary people. He is is a very private individual, and rarely talks about himself despite his world class skill as a sculptor and his many awards and accolades. His magniﬁcent sculptures have won him fans throughout the globe. His staunchest fan, however, has always been his lovely wife Patricia. When I asked her about her husband’s recent ranking upgrade, she smiled and replied that the ranking of Number One in the world should have been awarded to him long time ago. Wives of highly successful men always seem to say things like that. It’s a clue to why those successful men are the way they are.
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.
