When the term ‘body art’ is mentioned, people instantly think of piercings and tattoos. However, the following art pieces will prove to you that there are other ways of exploiting the human body in the name of art.
This piece of body art has been named Gemini. The woman chosen for the job was painted in such a way that her arms and breasts were sky blue while two babies were painted onto her legs. She sat with her knees pulled to her knees in such a way that it looked like she was holding the babies.
2. Walking Money
A beautiful woman was chosen to present this piece of art. The area that was painted extended beyond her collar bone till her thighs. The color used was that of money which made her seem like a walking talking one dollar bill!
3. The Man with Two Faces
One half of a man’s face was painted in such a way that it seemed as though he had two faces. His right eye was the left eye of the ‘other face’ and the ‘other nose’ was in line with his own.
4. Woman Holding a Baby
A woman was painted blue and green and her right breast was painted a skin color. A baby was drawn on top of it and her hand was placed in such a way that it seemed that she was holding it.
5. The Giraffe
A giraffe was painted onto a man’s hand and he was told to fold his fingers in. The index and pinky fingers were painted white and were meant to be the ears while the nose was painted onto the wrist.
6. The Human Window
A woman was told to stand next to an old window which had a moss green frame. A part of this frame was removed and a similar color was used to paint it onto the woman. A few cracks were painted on as well to make it look real.
7. Two Wallpapers
Two women were made to stand against a rose-patterned wallpaper. Their dresses were painted on and their umbrellas were duplicated to imitate the same pattern. A hole was made into the wall to make it seem as though they were coming out of the plaster when in fact, they were merging into it.
8. The Hand Bird
This time, a woman was chosen for this art piece created on the human hand. She was told to bend it at the wrist and cross the middle finger over the index which was meant to be the bird’s beak. The gap that was made between the thumb and the index finger was painted in to look like an eye and the rest of the hand was red, green and blue- the body of the exotic bird.
9. The Human Wall
A wallpaper with an intricate pattern was chosen for this painting. A woman was painted from head to toe with the same colors and the pattern was duplicated perfectly. She was then told to stand against the wall and she blended in so well, that people were quite startled to find that a woman was a part of the picture at all!
10. Two Faces
One woman was made to face another woman who was placed upside down. The woman who was on the right had her arm-pit painted on to make it look like an eye and her breast looked like a nose. Her lips extended beyond her belly-button. The woman on the left had her neck pained in to look like a pair of lips and one eye was made on her pelvic bone.
