Marc Sijan


Marc Sijan is an American artist best noted for his life-size figurative hyper-realistic sculptures. He is currently rated as the No. One Hyper Realistic sculptor in the world. Sijan received his Bachelor’s degree in art education from the University of Wisconsin in 1968, and then went on to complete a Master of Science in Art degree three years later. It was then that he began to sculpt the human figure.

Sijan’s Studio is located on a small side street in Milwaukee’s Bay View south side. It’s definitely off the beaten path, which is exactly what he wants. He spends a tremendous amount of time on a single sculpture, taking from six months to a year to complete just one. Quiet and solitude are a must for the great concentration to detail that is necessary in his work.

His creations have been featured in galleries, museums and special exhibits all over the world. They include the Smithsonian Museum of Modern Art in Washington, D.C, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art and the Milwaukee Art Museum. Sijan is of Serbian descent, and is proud to have been honored as one of the most prominent Serbian Americans in the world. He has had over 60 one-man museum exhibitions, a truly exceptional achievement.

His work has won him recognition throughout the country, with over 50 one-man museum exhibitions worldwide, over half of which set all time attendance records. His work appears in permanent collections in over 30 international museums.
