Super realistic masks by artist Landon Meier
A few days ago I saw these interesting masks. The first feeling is that this is just a photoshop. But no, these are really very well-made masks of human faces. I look at them and think how alive they are.
All these amazing and interesting masks are made by an artist from the American Denvir, Landon Meier.
I can add that not one person is working on the creation, but the whole Hyperflesh company. The name can be roughly translated as “super flesh” or “super skin.” The brand speaks for itself.
Everything becomes clear when a man in a Hyperflesh T-shirt demonstrates products. Maybe I am very suspicious, but how strong, these masks look like real human faces and heads.
The history of commercial production begins in 2011. The entire Internet was filled with articles and posts about Landon and his realistic masks.
He started with the masks of children’s faces. Oh how emotional they are. Well, just like real little children. We look and remember. Here are the photo reminders.
100% serious, these interesting items do not need to be treated. This is all for ridiculing and raising the mood.
Interesting, lively masks are in special demand for Halloween. In principle, not surprising. For this holiday is very suitable and interesting subject.
In 2011, when Landon created a set of three ultra-realistic children’s masks made of special dense latex. Photos of creepy masks, worn on a man with a pumped torso, spread on the Internet, like a forest fire. Hyperflesh increased its sales almost instantly. The growth was about 400%.
Prior to this, a talented artist made 25 orders per month. After a sharp popularity and increase in demand, 25 masks have already been ordered every week. And it’s not hard to count an order for 100 interesting items per month. Therefore it was necessary to hire additional staff to increase production capacity.
At that time, one interesting mask cost about $ 350 apiece. Good price for an interesting hand-made item. Still, Meyer’s work was definitely not cheap. Not everyone could afford such a luxurious mask. Connoisseurs of good art, realizing the true value of these works, even bought for $ 350 apiece. Alone, to replenish collections. Others are on the contrary for entertainment, practical jokes and for holidays such as Halloween.
But children’s masks were just the beginning for Landon Meyer and Hyperflesh. In 2013, the artist again won the attention of the Internet with his participation in Comic-Con. This time with a realistic mask of the protagonist of the series “Breaking Bad”. The official name in Russia is “Breaking Bad”, but it can be translated as “Worse than where”
We must pay tribute to an interesting artist. He is in the mask of Mike Tyson, along with Brian Cranston, all played up and fooled. Yes, so that you can only clap your hands and shout bravo. Interesting fact: Walter White himself was in the mask of Walter White. More precisely, the actor Brian Cranston who played this persona in the TV series “Breaking Bad”. Well, all the greats played out. No one guessed. And only after an hour of wandering around the pavilions of Comic-Con 2013, the actor took off his mask already on the scene, sitting in his chair. After revealing the truth, all of course were very surprised.
The mask of Walter White, on the actor Brian Cranston, made a lot of noise. On the Internet, a viral trend has gone to this interesting rally. Many bloggers have written about this. Even in the television news paid attention.
After such a popularity that occurred at Comic-Con 2013, the cunning artist Landon Meyer did not lose his head and put the mask of Walter White on eBay auction. Interesting fact: you will not believe, but this interesting item, with the personal signature of the famous actor, was sold for a fabulous $ 41,000. Good profit, even do it yourself.
On the crest of such commercial success, Hyperflesh and Landon Meyer were full of strength, money and new ideas. Created several hyper-realistic celebrity latex masks. Latex reflected such outrageous and interesting personalities as: actor Charlie Sheen, US President Barack Obama, TV presenter Stephen Colbert and even the famous dwarf villain from the TV series “Game of Thrones” character played by actor Peter Hayden Dinklage.
In April 2016, Landon Meier once again thundered on the entire Internet Internet. This time after the demonstration of three masks, the main candidates for the presidency of the United States this year: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
Very real and lively. Every year an interesting artist, together with his team, has done all the better and more realistic products.
