101 Creative Body Art Paintings

From Typographic Body Painting to Animalistic Body Art

— August 22, 2013 — Pop Culture
The human form can be considered a work of art in itself and these striking examples of creative body art make it undeniable. There are many talented body-painting artists who are capable of transforming the human form into something even more fantastical.

Whether an artist is painting on an outfit or turning a person into a wild animal with the use of body paint, these illusory techniques are impressive and very convincing. A notable example of this is a piece of body art by Peter Kun Frary. This artist made a model and her surroundings look like an oil painting. If you didn't know it was a work of body art, it would be easy enough to be fooled into thinking that it was actually a painting on canvas.
