Your Body is A Wonderland

This is so refreshing and Willy-Wonka-ish! Body painting  artist, Trina Merry paints nude models into New York City skylines. She seamlessly blends their body parts into the surrounding urban environment.

‘my surface is living, breathing human beings, making this a highly relevant & immediate medium.’ merry describes ‘I use non-toxic hypoallergenic paint applied with a brush or airbrush. the painting is temporary, like a tibetan sand painting, beginning to change into another work as soon as I stop painting, changing texture & color.’”

Creative Spotlight: Aakash Nihalani

Love his work! New York-based street artist, Aakash Nihalani creates visually striking optical illusions using neon tape and people as his canvas. According to his biography, what makes his work so appealing is the intentional interplay between the shapes he uses and the unconventional means of portraying them. At first glance, we expect to see a simple geometric arrangement, but in reality, his work makes us stop and go…”Wait a moment….how did he do that!” Below are some of his mind-bending installations spotted on the streets.
