Acrylic on Flesh

March 16th, 2010

Alexa Meade paints with acrylic on flesh (and clothing). So yeah, you could call them bodypaintings but they’re like nothing I’ve seen before. Stunning work!

    ok… I’m still in disbelief… is this someone painting over a photograph? Or are these people literally painted on and they are walking around looking like an oil painting????

    it is so weird how people from different places can think of the same without communicating or apparently having same conditions to concieve the idea. No joking, i thought of this myself, i guess i sould still do it i dont know..

    Great work now I don´t need to explore that part myself :-)
    Been doing similar stuff on a experimental level (rather than focusing on the aesthetical part)

    Very nice, but is this thing non toxic?

  29. Matt Foster Says:

    Nothing new. In fact, this is not as interesting as Boo Ritson’s work.

  30. Mark Fawler Says:

    @Matt Foster: You’re probably not trying to be as dismissive as you sound. I guess you didn’t dig this, but maybe if you dug a little deeper you’d find something new or interesting about it. I also like Boo Ritson, but for different reasons. In fact, on a purely visual level I’m finding Meade’s work more interesting than Ritson’s.

  37. Kent Judkins Says:

    Wow! Someone should take a video of his subjects. Otherwise it is hard to believe it is real. It is a great idea and amazing end product.
