Talk about taking a painting off canvas, artist Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art and pushes the boundaries of illusion.

Best known for her portraits painted on the human body, Meade manipulates the classic concept of trompe l’oeil and creates an optical illusion that makes three-dimensional objects appear to be two-dimensional. She selects her subjects and scene and literally paints it, covering everything—people, clothing, food, furniture, shadows, etc. By collapsing depth and making her subjects look flat Meade is able to confuse how the eye processes objects in a space.

Simply put, Alexa Meade’s work is stunning.
