wallpaper camouflage

Chilean artist Cecilia Paredes’ latest work experiments with her own body by painting these floral wallpaper designs on herself and blending with the background. The images are fabulous and so creative.  Makes me want to have wallpaper all over my house.

“The illusion of ‘disappearing’ into the landscape that surrounds her, is in reality a blending, she is now ‘part of the landscape’ in her quest of belonging,” Paredes explains. “The theme behind all is re-location after displacement and migration and how one has to adjust in order to belong. Tough it is, but it has to be done, without forgetting our origin.”
