Artist Trina Merry crafts surreal urban scenes by masterfully camouflaging her models with body paint so they blend into their surroundings.
Whether they're fine art museum installations or major commercial advertising campaigns, all of Merry's ephemeral body paintings are exquisite and mind-blowingly realistic in their own way.
"Painting on the body creates a special connection to a person that other visual art forms have trouble accomplishing; it’s a distinctly human experience," Merry writes on her website. "I am a conceptual artist and often I am inspired by the bodies themselves — by what they can and can’t do."
Because she is based in both New York City and San Francisco, a significant portion of Merry's work focuses on the iconic landmarks and street scenes that define these unique city landscapes.
