BodyPainting – trends from the Gatsby’s eye

You may have seen this image making the rounds on the Internet. A smashed up car, that upon closer inspection is  made up of painted human bodies. Acclaimed Australian body painter, Emma Hack, (who painted Gotye in his “Somebody That I Used to Know” video) painted 12 men and five women and sculpted over the course of 18 hours. Grimey Gatsby digs the precision, creativity and innovation of body painters who are pushing the limits.  Not to mention the yogic capacities of those models!  Inspired by the Car Crash image (which keeps popping up on social media and blogs), we’ve gathered a few examples of other talented artists taking body painting to the next level.  Feast your eyes on these magnificent works and stunningly composed photos…
