Make-up, body paint and wallpaper are finally together in harmony in this series entitle Camouflage Body by Cecil Parades. The collection features models who are standing in front of vintage-wallpapered rooms whilst covered in matching paint -- it's like hide and seek, except artistic.

The Peruvian artist highlights how easy it is to blend in while paying tribute to design styles of yesteryear. Camouflage Body covers a wide array of positions, poses and backgrounds. The series is interesting as at first, the models are almost completely unnoticeable, but a closer look reveals them almost popping right out from the rest of the picture, giving it a sort of 3D quality.

Looking at these pictures make me want to double check all the walls from now on.
