Outside of magnets and like, vinyl records, the closest thing we have to magical sorcery is liquid paint. Watch as Brad Lawrence shows off another level of the amazingness that is painting by water: liquid body paint that only shows up only under a black light. It’s like the most subtly loud temporary tattoo a person…
Body painter Trina Merry hides the naked human body in plain sight by painting women exactly like the background of New York City. At the right angle, the women are essentially camouflaged because they blend in seamlessly with the cityscape. It's pretty amazing how perfect the paint is. NSFW
Here's some visual fun for you. Elvis Schmoulianoff created this trippy stop-motion animation video showing herself get painted as if she was part of the canvas. It's delightful to see the art surround her and then become her.
Man, it took me an embarrassingly long time to see her but she's there all right. The picture above is not a parrot but a woman in bodypaint posing so she looks exactly like a parrot. What a fantastic mind trip.
Here's a ride I wouldn't mind taking, even if it ends up in a crash: a car made with bodypainted people. The art project, which paints 17 bodies and shapes it into a busted car is part of an anti-speeding ad that's supposed to encourage driving slow. You bet we would.
This is a lovely painting—except that it's a photo. Of a person. In front of a set. It's an amazing blend of photography, body paint, and modeling. And it makes me so thankful that Photoshop exists.
I've found a new hero. His name is Mark Greenawalt and he uses liquid latex and bodypaint to turn naked people into Star Wars characters, superheroes, and various fantasy creatures. The man's talented and has some gorgeous canvases.
