Ruel James Sculptures are Life like Works of Art

Written & Photos by Nikki Artale
There is a master walking among us known as Ruel James who possesses exceptional skills in creating sculptures of women’s bodies. The sculptures are so real and life like and breathtaking to see and the reason for that is he uses live models. They are truly a beautiful work of art. His admiration and love for the human female body shows though in his sculptures as he creates his pieces.
This artist Ruel James, known for his beautiful paintings and sculptures, is creating a gallery that will be called “A Piece of Heaven” featuring sculptures of beautiful women. The women are posed in many interesting poses and they are all perfectly formed, as seen in the eyes of Ruel James who makes his sculptures come to life. The exhibition will be shown in his studio at 1800 Industrial Road #130E, Las Vegas NV within a few months.
I was intrigued by the sculpture of a pregnant woman and my first thought was how wonderful it would be to have a sculpture showing your baby in the stomach before birth. Many women take nude photographs and make plaster molds of their pregnant stomachs and now this real life statute of one’s own pregnancy is fabulous.
I met Ruel five years ago as I was roaming through an art gallery in a downtown art district. As I passed his studio I was drawn in by a row of scultptured heads that turned out to be the heads of the mob bosses that he was commissioned to make for the Mob Experience at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas. They were real looking and eerie and I became mesmerized by the sculptures. I immediately saw Ruel’s talent in his artistry and became an instant admirer. 
I must include this poster that Ruel painted many years ago and it became the second most selling poster in the world. It proudly hangs in his gallery.  I hope one day he will re-release it so it can once again become a best seller.
