This Artist Uses Her Camouflage Skills To Blend Into Floral Backgrounds

Published 10 months ago

Cecilia Paredes is a Peruvian artist and a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. In her series called “Landscapes”, she blends herself into floral backgrounds using paint and clothing patterns and the images are simply mesmerizing.

“I wrap, cover or paint my body with the same pattern of the material and re-present myself as part of that landscape. Through this act, I am working on the theme of building my own identification with the entourage or part of the world where I live or where I feel I can call home,” says the artist. Cecilia works have won her numerous awards with the latest being the Prize for Excellence in the Pingyao Photo Festival 2014.

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
