Using humans as canvases. Amazing art by Alexa Meade

By -

Alexa Meade paints directly on the surfaces of live models and found objects in three-dimensional space, collapsing real world depth into seemingly two-dimensional paintings. Her work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., Postmasters Gallery in New York City, Galerie Ivo Kamm in Zürich, and the Saatchi Gallery in London.

Recently, Alexa completed a collaboration with performance artist Sheila Vand as Alexa // Sheila, submerging her signature painted subject in a pool of milk. Her portrait subjects include such individuals of note as Grammy winning musician Gotye.

Here are some of her works.
