Alexa’s living paintings

April 8, 2014


Instead of taking canvas to turn it into a painting, young American artist Alexa Meade takes people, chairs and walls and paints over them.

She applies acrylic paint to the surfaces of models and objects, giving them the appearance of brushwork in a traditional painting. Alexa taught herself how to paint and once said I didn’t have to think of painting as this thing on canvas, because I didn’t have any practice doing that. I just saw paint as something that can be used in space.
