Alexa Meade’s painting are unlike any other. Not because of the paint or even the style, but because of the canvas. Alexa paints directly onto people and 3D objects from real life in order to create incredible optical illusions. And they are stunning.
“I paint directly on top of live models to create the illusion that real-life people are inside the world of a 2D painting.” Alexa writes on her Facebook page. The 30 year old genius became a professional artist in 2009, teaching herself how to paint. Since then, she’s been inventing and perfecting her signature style.
