Cecilia Camouflaged

With the help her assistants, make-up and body paint, Peruvian artist Ceclia Paredes seamlessly blends herself into her own intricate, botanical paintings. Unlike Liu Bolin, she carefully chooses her poses and leaves her hair unpainted, which adds an element of mystique to each piece.

    Looks so cool. It reminds me of a movie I once watched where the bad guy hid in the house and camouflaged himself against the wall. Haha.

    I have to tell you that this post make me gasp audibly…These images are beyone amazing, and something about them resonates so deeply in my soul that I found myself staring at the screen for a good 15 minutes looking at the images over and over. I loved it so much that I had to post it on my blog, just wanted to let you know I credited you and linked to your site, hope that’s ok. My blog has been solely a platform for me to share my jewelry and the goings on in my life, but I LOVED this so much I just had to share! Thanks for being so RAD, for sharing such amazing things with the world, and for being my favorite daily morning read! Aloha, Sierra

  31. I’m kind of speechless… these are so inspiring! I am an artist, hotel designer, and fashion illustrator from Los Angeles… these kinds of images are so motivating. Love.

    Make my day and check out my work here? I think you’d love them too.

  35. While they are beautiful executions, it’s simply the same thing artist Emma Hack has been doing for years as you can see at the link below.

  37. Wow, just amazing! The pink one from the back is my favorite, although the green one (third from the top) took me a moment to really understand how she was positioned.

    Too cool! I wish I were that creative!! 🙂
