You might not notice anything extraordinary about Alexa Meade’s artwork at first, but that’s the point. Meade masterfully hides models in her paintings, creating living works of arts.
Meade is a 24-year-old artist who blends painting, photography, performance, and installation into incredible original works of art.
A statement on her website explains her artwork:
(Meade) creates her representational paintings directly on top of the physical subjects that she is referencing. When photographed, the representational painting and the subject being referenced appear to be one and the same as the 3D space of her painted scenes becomes optically compressed into a 2D plane.
Here are some examples of her work. You can check out her entire portfolio here at Alexameade.com.
