These Might Look Like Regular Paintings, But This Artist Took It To A Whole New Level. Wow!

August 4, 2014

Alexa Meade is a Los Angeles based artist known for her portaits painted on the human body that turn real life people into 2D works of art.

She paints on the surfaces of live human subjects, found objects, and architectural spaces in a way that optically compresses 3D space into a 2D plane when photographed.
