The Best Body Painting Artists & Their Masterpieces
- 3. Mirjana Kika Milosevic At first glance, your eyes only allow you to see a wooden doll head and torso attached by a spring to a stationary box. Looks can be deceiving, as the expert Serbian body painter Mirjana Kika Milosevic shows in this start-to-finish YouTube video. In it, you can watch her redefining lines of her body, retexturing her skin to look like polished wood, and transforming into a beautifully freaky marionette.
- 4. Alexa Meade Instead of using acrylic paints to create portraits of people on canvas, Alexa Meade applies paints on her subjects to make them appear to be part of a painting. Her technique transforms 3-D figures into 2-D Renoir-like paintings. This photo of Meade's shows the artist at work, eliminating the third dimension with every graceful brushstroke.
- 5. Johannes Stötter Johannes Stötter is a fine art bodypainter. It is this piece in particular—an eye-poppingly realistic poison-dart frog consisting of five human bodies—which elevated him to become world-renowned. Another masterpiece of his is the chameleon below, formed by three intertwined bodies.
