More Hyper-Realistic Acrylic Body Painting (7 pics)

When we first wrote about Alexa Meade, we knew her mind-blowing art would generate buzz. In fact, as one of our most popular posts of all time, Hyper-Realistic Acrylic Body Painting was seen by over 350,000 people on My Modern Met alone. What set it apart?

Meade masterfully mixed multiple disciples – paintings, performance, and photography and turned it into something the world had never seen. Coating her models with paint, she made her models become part of a living, breathing painting.

Watch this video to see it all come together.

She recently set off to London to paint an installation at the Saatchi Gallery. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for us!
