More Body Art

March 24, 2010

So while body art is still fresh on my mind, here are few other things to check out. Martha (thank you!) sent me this article about artist, Alexa Meade, and her unique style of body painting which she calls "Living Paintings". Have you ever seen anything quite like that?



And then there are the tribal artists featured in Natural Fashion which we kept re-newing from the library last year. Really stunning stuff. No formal training, no modern make-up or props, no mirrors, just natural inspiration, creativity, and the human desire to transform the ordinary to something extraordinary. More info here. And while searching for a link to the book, I came across this interview with the photographer, Hans Silvester. Nice to hear his thoughts on nature, photography, and the Omo people.
