“Bodypainting is the transformation of a human being into a breathing, moving, living piece of art.”

The Art of Body-painting by Gesine Marwedel an Germany based body painting artist who creates both beautiful and terrifying pieces of art right on the models who serve as her living canvases.

Gesine Marwedel is a master of painting on and with the human form – she can either emphasize it to work with her painting, or eliminate it to let her painting shine through. In both cases, she creates beautiful art that melds together with the people it’s painted on.

These aren’t just pretty pictures – Marwedel also believes in the therapeutic qualities of art. She has even published a book exploring how body painting can be used as therapy.
