Following the trials and tribulations of over 70 tribes from around the world, design duo Corina Olaru and Manuela Vulpescu, who together make up Swarte, created their series ‘One Square Meter of Roots’ that combines tribal body paint art with photography and illustration.

Cultural and spiritual identity is explored through real bodies with paintings that cover the human skin and then seamlessly cover the walls, showing commonality between the person and their culture as they are intertwined with the self and the soul of the community. This strong bond is what has kept these groups of identity alive, with customs and traditions that have survived throughout the years remaining mostly intact.

Each photograph comes with a story that shares an experience or a rite of passage, adding emotion to the tribal body paint art series.
