Painting an actual person in a painting ?? Turn a real life people into 2D

Alexa Meade (born 1986)  is an Americaninstallation artist best known for her portraits painted directly onto the human body and inanimate objects in a way that collapses depth and makes her models appear two-dimensional when photographed. What remains is "a photo of a painting of a person, and the real person hidden somewhere underneath."[2] She takes a classical concept — trompe l'oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representational painting look like a real three-dimensional space — and turns it on its head by doing the opposite, making real life appear to be a painting

 

"In some ways, artist Alexa Meade is a traditional figure painter. But she works on an unusual canvas: the actual human body. And she takes a classical concept — trompe l'oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representation look three-dimensional — and turns it on its head. Her aim is to do the opposite, to collapse depth and make her living models into flat pictures." -PBS NewsHour

 

 

 

Looking at his image, you first see the painted man and think this is a traditional painting done on paper. However, when you look at the people in the background and how different they look, you can see that Meade has actually painting on this man physically instead of on paper.
