Maybe you’ve seen some amazing body art… and maybe you’ve seen some really cool things done with blacklight… but what happens when you combine the two? You get something like John Poppleton‘s UV body painting.
Poppleton’s innovative artwork actually uses blacklight to help set his canvas. Painting the female body with breathtaking and iconic scenery, Poppleton records his process and then composes videos to help viewers get their head wrapped around the steps taken. (His final work almost comes across as a digital rendering, which is why these videos end up being pretty useful for non-believers). Another reason I love this guy? The fact that all of his paintings deal with the concept of painting one landscape on another. Deep stuff, you guys, deep stuff.
