The Extraordinary Illusory Art of Alexa Meade

Alexa Meade paints people.

She literally does paint people:

She applies paint directly onto her subjects, thereby tricking the eye into believing that we're looking at a painted portrait rather than the real sitter.


When I first saw these, I assumed that Alexa had been Photoshopped into a painting. But no, that's actually her in real life painting someone to look like a painting.


See more of her extraordinary work here on her website and her Flickr page here. My thanks to the ever-brilliant Andy Nyman for finding these.
