Japanese Shop Sells Hyperrealistic Face Masks #ArtTuesday
Hyperallergic shares this unique and interesting 3D-printed, hyperrealistic face mask from artist Shuhei Okawara.
Kamenya Omote, a Tokyo-based shop that sells artistic masks for parties and film and theater productions, has started producing three-dimensional face masks that model the features of a stranger’s face. The masks are frighteningly realistic, with only two details giving them away — the printed eyes and lips don’t move.
The shop’s owner, Shuhei Okawara, says that he received headshots from over 100 applicants who were interested in modeling for the masks when he first launched the project in October.
