Utilizing the human body as a canvas, Artist John Poppleton paint stunning landscapes that glow under black lights. From summery Africa to spiral galaxy, Poppleton is able to capture various mesmerizing scenes on the curves of the human physique. Some of the paintings were drawn on more than one person. With clever lighting arrangement, these paintings are connected and form a complete scene. Another special feature of Poppleton’s bodyscape actually glow under black lights. To create paints like that, artist need to work inside a darkened studio and painted with UV body paint under the illumination of the black light, which is a very surreal even spiritual experience for artist himself.
Artist Johannes Stötter created this incredible body painting – human chameleon which consists of, not just one person, but two people lying on top of each other. Stötter worked for four hours to design the piece and the bodypainting took six hours with the help of an assistant. While a photo of this chameleon is stunning, in and of itself, watch the video to be really shocked. The colorful creature comes alive! Slowly the “chameleon’s” arms move and then a leg unbends. You must watch the video at the end!
We have been featuring many creative body painting art on our site, some of them are full body painting, some of them are face painting and some of them are hands painting only. There are lots of amazing body painting works on internet, but today we will focus on on of its group – animal body painting. With professional make-up and expert lighting, creative artists paint on posed people to create the illusion of animal. Some of them are really convincing and make you wonder you are looking at a painting of an animal instead of the human body.
In the world of hand painting, Italian artist Guido Daniele is definitely a leading innovator. By having his models contort their hands into specific positions, he could use his painting skills to transform it into highly detailed and realistic animals onto hands. On average the typical “Handimal” takes around three to four hours to paint in its entirety. For Daniele, the hardest part is not the painting itself, but rather having to watch his paintings be washed down the drain and disappear on a daily basis. But luckily, we still can see those amazing works on photos.
