ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Houston, Texas-based artists Chadwick Gray and Laura Spector painted iconic artworks from museum collections directly onto human bodies and photographed them. The series is titled "Museum Anatomy." (via Juxtapoz)
Fry: Nowadays, people aren’t interested in art that’s not tattooed on fat guys.
These “bod-paintings” are quite ugly – just because someone gets a bright idea (paint master works on bodies) doesn’t mean the idea has to be followed through in reality. The painterly imitations of the masters are weak to say the least and clumsy and clunky at best.
I’m guessing that you’ve never applied liquid eyeliner.
Painting on flesh isn’t really analogous to painting on canvas or paper or wood.
I used this idea as part of a camo suit in my novel.. Faces and hands animated across your body would make hand-to-hand difficult for your opponent. http://cruft-private-janitorial.com/?chapter=13
Gratuitous Plug (albeit for a free blog)- but at least mildly relevant, sorry.
Nice work Chadwick and Laura. Great abstraction.
