Today I found this pretty neat collection of body art, all inspired by nature. The series is done by artist Johannes Stöter and all of the pieces are painted human canvases. You may be familiar with The Invisible Man who paints himself right into the backdrop of photos and in most cases blends in seamlessly. I’d definitely recommend taking a look at his work if you haven’t seen it before. This series however uses the same concept of body paint, but uses it to camouflage the human canvases into natural scenes. The example above really blew my mind as it looks just like a macro photography picture of a frog. If you look closely, you can see that it’s actually 5 models painted and arranged on a leafy backdrop, one as the main body, two as the front legs and outside torso and the final two as the back legs. The organic shapes, gradients, use of lines and vibrant colors make the canvases blend together and form one object. The attention to detail here is just amazing. Use the link above to see the rest of the gallery with canvases being disguised as watermelons, trees, pineapples and even flowers. How long did it take you to find each of the human canvases?
