24 year old Alexa Meade paints people and the result in just breathtaking.
According to her website rather than painting a representational picture on a flat canvas, Meade paints her representational image directly on top of her three-dimensional subjects. The subject and its representation become one and the same. Essentially, her art imitates life on top of life.
At first these photo below look just like a painting on canvas. But actually, they are real painted people! They are people painted to look like they were in a painting and it's so interesting to look it. It actually plays trick on your eyeballs, in a good way.
