    Well I’ll be dipped in shit and rolled in bread crumbs! This is seriously one of the coolest things I’ve seen in ages.

    These artworks are by Alexa Meade, a 23-year-old artist based in Washington DC, whose work is a combination of installation, painting, performance, photography and video art. Instead of painting on flat canvas, Alexa paints her image directly on people (!!) and other three-dimensional subjects.

    This seriously blows my mind.

     




    I seriously cannot cope with all the crazy talented people in this world. Speechless. Please watch this short video below of Alexa painting live – it goes for less than 2 minutes. You’ll die. I did. Honestly, I actually died. I’m dead right now. For real.
