Still Photography

Today’s artist discovery is Alexa Meade. Alexa is an artist based in D.C. that combines portriature, painting, photography and installation to create a unique style of art. From her website, “Rather than creating representational paintings on a flat canvas, Alexa 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.”

Above is a photograph of one of her pieces. Below is the same piece from another angle.

The guy in the picture above is actually a real person! Alexa applies the paint directly to the man and his surroundings, and when photographed, it appears to be a painted portrait! Here are some more examples:
