#FridayFinds: Amazing Artist Alexa Meade


This Friday Find is absolutely amazing. Alexa Meade is taking a new wildly innovative approach to art by first selecting her topic, then painting it. Literally. She is an artist based out of L.A who is painting directly onto the human body making humans seemingly 2D canvases. This is what PBS said about her inspiring works, 

"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."

Take a look at these next few pictures, all from her website {Alexa Meade Art}. Also click on any of them to be redirected to her site! 





Her artwork is truly breathtaking. What do you think of Alexa Meade?
