Ronald Mueck is an Australian hyper-realist sculptor that works out of the United Kingdom.
Ron Mueck, born in Melbourne in 1958, has worked for 20 years as puppet-maker for advertising ventures and TV shows like “The Muppets” show, even making an impressive turn as a special effects creator in movies like Labyrinth, before becoming a devoted artist.
