Unbelievable Blend of Graffiti, Living Paintings & Photography

By Hanssie on November 27th 2013

There are few words to adequately describe Alexa Meade’s style of photography – stunning, unique, extraordinary – they just don’t fully describe Alexa’s visual imagery. A blend of painting and photography, Alexa’s live models blend seamlessly into the flat background of her portraits. In a previous article, we’ve seen some videos of Alexa’s work, painting her models into the background, using a variety of mediums, including milk.

In this series, “Art on the Streets,” the 26-year-old artist paints her live models as monochromatic stencils against colorful, graffiti covered walls, making her models look almost 2 dimensional. The result is an incredible juxtaposition of life meeting art in front of a camera.
