My Skin is my Canvas

Body-painters Chadwick Gray and Laura Spector  from Houston, Texas are the creators of  the ‘Museum Anatomy’ artwork which are museum paintings painted on the human body. Spector paints onto Chadwick’s body and then their artwork is captured with photography.

Their work has been published in The Harvard Review, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!, and in the book, The Real Real Thing:  The Model in the Mirror of Art by Wendy Steiner.

Scriptural Body Art

Israeli artist Ronit Bigal has taken inspiration from the Bible and applied scriptures, like tattoos onto the human body. She calls it “Body Scripture II”  The body appears to be an abstract landscape, as Ronit beautifully applies calligraphy to each groove and contour. To create each piece, Ronit photographed the body and then later wrapped the photos with cited calligraphy taken from Biblical texts.
