Russian Artist Creates Stunningly Realistic Dolls

Sometimes, a craftsman is too good, like when he makes dolls so realistic it’s creepy. Michael Zajkov is one such man. The faces of his art dolls are so realistic, it’s disturbing to see him hold their heads in his hands. When you watch his work in motion, there’s only so much you can do not to mutter “please don’t blink, please don’t blink, please don’t blink…” Zajkov graduated from Kuban State University of Russia in 2009. From 2010 to 2013 he worked at a puppet theater while also attending a graduate school. He was propelled to fame after the 2013 “Art Dolls” expo in Moscow. Zajkov’s creations have multiple joints. He uses polymer clay for the dolls, hand painted glass eyes from Germany, and French mohair for hair.

Porcelain Beauties by Marina Bychkova

The graceful and mysterious, delicate and playful… Porcelain beauties by Marina Bychkova embody the ideal of “eternal feminine.” Marina wrote on her website: “My need to work with dolls became evident as a calling when I was six years old. As a child I became painfully aware and appalled at the mediocrity and the uninspired dullness of mass-produced dolls. This profound frustration coupled with my natural sensibilities inspired me to create my own dolls, suited to my own ideas of feminine beauty.” We’ve already written about beautiful realistic dolls of Alexandra Kokinova and cute handmade dolls by da-bu-di-bu-da.
