Trent Taft was born in New York and began drawing and painting in high school. Son of a professional photographer, the artist created a special tendency to produce portraits and figures, but it was during a class mandatory introduction during the Art course at Purchase College that he discovered sculpture.
Very influenced by the work of classic and modern artists like Ron Mueck and Evan Penny the artist creates incredible hyper-realistic sculptures with silicone, ceramic and bronze. Trent currently resides in New York and works independently in the world of visual effects for movies.
The problem solving and meticulous craftsmanship that is involved in composing hyper-realistic sculptures provides an endless amount of room to advance as an artist.

In order to accomplish the challenge of each piece, every aspect of the sculpture must be validated in its physical appearance and how it relates to nature. The capability of fabricating a realistic work of art can be valuable but may be boring if the design and concept are unoriginal. Synthesizing multiple anatomies from nature while following the rules of physics and functionality is what I intend to achieve.
Inspired by films with credible imaginary characters and nature itself, the artist would like to bring his creations to life in a public space through artistry.
