His canvases get goosebumps!

Body Art. (NSFW) Martin Armand gives a whole new meaning to the term "anatomical art" with his airbrush paintings on bare skin. Five galleries of photos: the first page only links to a few larger images, but the rest of the galleries work fine. More bodypainting here (E-cards site, but very cool images), here (very nice "camouflage" body art), here (especially artistic) and via this previous MetaFilter thread. But remember; if you worky, no clicky the linky!

If you have a problem with the third link, go to the main site, click "English" at the bottom, then "gallery".

Nice. And here is the opposite approach. Maybe these two ideas can be combined to create an infinite recursion perpetual motion machine.

Body paint is overrated. I prefer my body alumminum sided.

Yay, great links, taz - I love this stuff. And good connection with the Vanity Fair cover, fandago_matt - I had forgotten about that. Boy, I am loving some of Joanne Gair's work - really nice.

Neat-o! I wonder how they get the crotchular areas so smooth...

Why go to all the trouble? If you're just going to use them for posters, wouldn't it be easier to do it photoshop?

Now, if they had the models in situ...

Oh, Specklet.

I saw something like this at Drupa (the big Dusseldorf printing trade show) in 2000. The best part was they actually let you watch them paint the women.
