Body Paint Artist Hikaru Cho Creates Surreal and Realistic Body Art

Impressive body paint artist Hikaru Cho creates deceivingly realistic artworks, using people in place of canvas. Her body art is incredibly surreal, turning people into electronic devices (among other things).

Cho paints buttons and zippers onto some people, making it look like they're wearing skin suits. One of her pieces makes a man look like he's pulled up his skin to reveal the bones underneath. Another of her painted subjects sports a popped open battery panel on their wrist. These mind-bending artworks turn people into walking works of art.

Hikaru Cho is an extremely creative individual. She studied at Musashino Art University, and while she's clearly a talented body paint artist, that's more of a side job for Cho. She's also working on designs for various smartphone apps.

These hyperrealistic body artworks will make viewers stop and take a second look.
