From Body Calligraphy to Safari Animal Similarities

Many cultures around the world take part in body painting projects as a form of creative and imaginative expression. Whether for cultural, tribal or historical reasons, body parts like the back, legs, face and arms continue to be used as canvases for beautifully bizarre and aesthetic works of art.

In fashion, art, beauty and design, the body has been painted to blend into landscapes, look like animals or simply turn the human form into something unrecognizable. To turn the body into a medium for untamed artistic expression that can be in an instant washed away and erased is not only powerful, but intellectually stimulating. From plaster body painting to metallic-skinned editorials, using the body as a picturesque canvas opens up the door for a wide range of sublime picturesque creations.
