The Bald Head Art of Philip Levine

It really bothered Philip Levine when he started losing his hair while still in his early twenties. But with the help of bodypaint artist Kat Sinclair, he found a creative solution. Together, the pair have created hundreds of elaborate head paintings and adornments:

"I thought why not use it as a canvas, paint and attach things to my head using the border of where my hair would be," said the 28-year-old Londoner.[...]

Since then he has penned dozens of designs which Kat has recreated on his head. These have ranged from a giant wave splashing over his ears, to his head becoming shrubbery dotted with model butterflies.

On average the designs take two hours to create, but some of the more elaborate have taken up to five hours and are therefore reserved for parties. His favourite so far is a time consuming one where Kat covered his head with 1,000 Swarovski crystals, each individually glued on.
