Hyperrealistic is a term often paraded when it comes to the new class of sketches and paintings representing humans in their gloriously ‘substantive’ details. But this time around hyper-realism takes a more three-dimensional route with over hundred miniature film sets being painstakingly designed by artists from all over the world. All of these fascinating artworks are currently displayed at the Musée Miniature et Cinéma, which is a five-floored museum in Lyon, France.
Many of these breathtaking scenes are created by miniaturist-extraordinaire and Museum curator Dan Ohlmann. And as can be comprehended from the sheer details of the artworks, all of these sets are ‘realistically’ based on their actual locations. Simply put, the mini-versions boast of precisely scaled dimensions and intricate objects that are entirely derived from numerous photographs and measurements of their originally regular-sized counterparts.
The good news is for the enthusiasts is that the Musée Miniature et Cinéma is open throughout the year for you to take a gander at these magnificent specimens. And in case you are interested in more ‘godly’ works of miniature art, do check out this impressive creation from Ryan McAmis.
