Hikaru Cho Merges Humans with Technology Through Hyperrealistic Bodypainting

Tokyo-based artist Hikaru Cho is back again with more captivating makeup transformations. This time, the exceptionally talented artist used her expert makeup skills to create hyperrealistic illusions of floating dismembered heads and altered human faces.

The designs were commissioned by Samsung for the launch of their Galaxy S6 phones, so all of the works of art were inspired by this technology. The creations have a high-tech aspect to them, combining parts of the human body with the characteristics of the newest electronics.

The floating heads are meant to represent the phone's wireless charging capabilities, showing what a model would look like if she were being recharged. Hikaru also used her own face as a canvas when she painted copies of her eyes further down her cheeks, mimicking the downward swiping motion used on modern cellphones.
