WHAT A DISCOVERY!
I just found Alexa Meade today. It’s a treat for my senses.
A reprieve from daily life.
Alexa Meade (born 1986) is an American Installation Artist best known for her portraits painted directly onto the human body and inanimate objects in a way that collapses depth and makes her models appear two-dimensional when photographed. What remains is “a photo of a painting of a person, and the real person hidden somewhere underneath.”
She takes a classical concept – trompe l’oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representational painting look like a real three-dimensional space – and turns it on its head by doing the opposite, making real life appear to be a painting.
~~Your Body is My Canvas~~

Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art. Not for her a life of sketching and stretching canvases. Instead, she selects a topic and then paints it – literally. She covers everything in a scene – people, chairs, food, you name it – in a mask of paint that mimics what’s below it.
In this eye-opening talk Meade shows off photographs of some of the more outlandish results and shares a new project involving people, paint and milk.
