About this project
Currently, in popular culture, body painting is closely associated with eroticism and exploitation of human body. I want to change this perception and show how body painting is a serious art form that celebrates and elevates the human body.
To do this, I started a series for reproduction of famous masterpieces as body paintings. I choose the work by artists who I admire and has been influential in my artistic growth such as Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh and Gustav Klimt.
This is the 1st or a series of 3 projects:
- 1. Creating the first 5 body painting reproduction
- 2. Creating the last 5 body painting reproduction
- 3. Putting together a photobook consist of all 30 images
The funding for the first 2 projects will be used to help me cover the cost of producing the images. The funding for the 3rd project will be used to cover the cost for putting together and printing the photo book.
I've created over 20 images to date. Few examples:
