Elvis Schmoulianoff's project 'Painted' is an amazing stop-motion body paint time lapse that celebrates the power of transformation and disguise. In this visual narrative, the artist plays the main character and as her body paint takes on a life of its own, she is taken over by the mischief of the designs.

The creative moving visuals carry a childlike, experimental quality. Viewers are drawn in by curiosity as they're forced to wonder what image the paint is creating. The vegan makeup artist's work is so intricate and colorful, begging to be looked at as it draws the attention of your eyes.

The body paint time lapse is playful yet eerie, and the artist never seems to run out of ideas for her next design!
