Focus: Kazuhiro Tsuji

Kazuhiro TsujiMostly known as the special-effects makeup artist for Planet of the Apes, Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Batman and Robin in Hollywood, Japan-born Kazuhiro Tsuji sculpts hyperrealistic 3-D portraits of famous public figures such as Andy Warhol, Abraham Lincoln and Dali. By employing mold making techniques and precise sculpting, Tsuji creates his busts using resins, silicones and pigments. The result is shockingly realistic – just look at the hair on the hands, wrinkles and eye capillaries!
