Wait, those are SCULPTURES?! 29 Hyperrealistic Statues by Korean Artist Xooang Choi

The first time I saw the work of South Korean Artist Xooang Choi, I thought they were photographs of models. As it turns out, they’re hyperrealistic sculptures, often surreal in nature. Their work has themes of co-dependancy, inadequacy, and anthropomorphism. The expressiveness on these sculpture’s faces is incredibly real! Here are some of my favorite works of Xooang Choi, which can be found on their website.
