Alexa Meade: Your body is my canvas

A California artist Alexa Meade is turning people into paintings. She skips the canvas in her artwork. Instead, she physically paints on human subjects - on their clothes, their shoes, their skin, their hair. Then she places them in a real-life setting and photographs it. The result is an image that looks like a painting within a photo. It’s an optical illusion that blurs the lines of where reality ends and art begins.

I like for my work to create this living element. When you look at a photo of one of my installations, you see the painted thing but then you actually see the person coming through it.
