About the artist:
Jamie Salmon was born in the UK and began his career as an artist and sculptor in the movie effects industry. He likes to use the human form as a way of exploring our perceptions of what is real and how we react when our visual perceptions of this reality are challenged. The idea behind the work has to be strong and the execution visually intriguing so that the the viewer is caught off guard by the balance between reality and unreality.

Jamie Salmon’s work is of the Hyperrealism genre and can be compared with the work of Ron Mueck who also began his career in a similar feld. Hyperrealism grew from the Photorealism genre of the 1960’s and 70’s where the source of the painting was a photograph and the resulting image very precise and realistic.
