Alexa Meade: Your body is my canvas

Alexa Meade paints portraits on the human body that turn real life people into seemingly 2D works of art.

“In some ways, artist Alexa Meade is a traditional figure painter. But she works on an unusual canvas: the actual human body. And she takes a classical concept — trompe l’oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representation look three-dimensional — and turns it on its head. Her aim is to do the opposite, to collapse depth and make her living models into flat pictures.”
