Duane Hanson was one of the pioneers of photo realistic sculpture.

Duane Hanson (January 17, 1925-January 6, 1996) was an American artist based in South Florida, a sculptor known for his lifecast realistic works of people, cast in various materials, including polyester resin, fiberglass, Bondo and bronze. His work is often associated with the Pop Art movement, as well as hyperrealism.

After acheiving a Masters of Fine Arts and teaching high school art, he created his first photorealistic sculpture in 1966.

He started producing more simplistic, single-person sculptures in the 1970’s.
