Just in case you missed it when we announced the launch of Art Blog, Neatorama's new indie artist portfolio blog, here is one that I'd like to feature again: Living Paintings by Alexa Meade.
Alexa is politico turned artist, and specializes in an unusual form of reverse trompe-l’oeil painting:
My work features painted portraits of people and objects, with a twist. Rather than painting on a canvas, I paint directly onto the subjects themselves. This creates the effect of making 3D installations appear to be flat paintings. From my background in politics, I’ve learned that what you encounter always has some kind of spin on it, and that we can’t always believe what we see.
