Body Paint Turns Contortionists Into Animals

UK-based concept artist Emma Fay recreates creatures of all kinds on the bodies of contortionists that will have you doing a double-take for her 2014 series ‘Marvels of Nature.’ The contrast of the vividly-hued paint is especially remarkable against the white paint on bodies seamlessly spilling over into the stark white background, making the painted creatures stand out even more. Working fast was imperative as each contortionist could only hold the difficult poses for approximately 5 seconds but one wouldn’t know it from the amazing results Fay was able to achieve with each human animal.
