Alexa Meade

Alexa Meade is an installation artist based in Washington D.C.
She is also one of the artists who use illusion for her work.

First of all, look at her works.

They might look like just nice pieces of painting.
But in fact, they are real life people body-painted on their skin!!
Here are some more images taken from a distance. 

Her incredible use of acrylic paint on 3 dimensional objects made them absolutely flat and became part of her painting!!
Most of painters try to make realistic painting by put more and more details in their paintings. But she did completely opposite from it. She took out all the details from objects and put texture of painting instead, and made life objects into painting! That's absolutely fantastic!
Her idea that making something real not real gave me a new perspective on my FMP!
