Fake Acrylic Paintings by Alexa Meade
It’s unbelievable, but the paintings you are about to see are not paintings at all! Alexa Meade paints with acrylics directly on human flesh, and creates the illusion of painterly portraits.
“Alexa Meade is an installation artist based in the Washington, DC area. Her background in the world of political communications has fueled her intellectual interest in the tensions between perception and reality.
Alexa Meade’s innovative use of paint on the three dimensional surfaces of found objects, live models, and architectural spaces has been incorporated into a series of installations that create a perceptual shift in how we experience and interpret spatial relationships.” (BIO)

this is a really cool idea, but most might consider this cheating other than being talented. most movie or stage sets do the same thing.
What an incredible idea. Thank you for your creative and raw talent!
It would have been easier just to draw it on a usual canvas, and now those poor guys have to wash that paint on their faces.
Oh, that’s how the realistic paintings are made.. :)
I would never have guessed it were not paintings! She is unbelievable!
