When an artist becomes too good with his work then that scares people with what he can accomplish. Same can be said about Russian artist Michael Zajkov who makes dolls. The dolls that he makes are so realistic that they may seem disturbing to many people. When he shows his craftsmanship then all one can think of is, ‘don’t blink.’
Where Can I Buy A Michael Zajkov Doll?
The dolls are not for sale to the public but Michael Zajkov loves to show them off at exhibitions where doll collectors snatch them up. Apart from that, he documents his entire process on his Instagram. Talking about what he has done, he graduated from Kuban State University of Russia in 2009. Then from 2010-2013, he worked at a puppet theater and was also attending a graduate school.
He uses polymer clay to make molds for the dolls, hand painted glass eyes from Germany and French mohair for the hair. Checkout the videos and pictures below and you’ll be mesmerized and freaked out at the same time.
