    How nuts is this? Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes loves messing with our minds and performing disappearing acts in front of our eyes. Acting as both the photographer and the subject with cunning help of her assistants, she creates photo performance based works by blending herself into her own bold and colourful paintings using make-up and body paint.

    This work is a bit like Liu Bolin meet Alexa Meade’s painted people. In other words – cooltown!
