Real Life Art – Living Paintings

Alexa Mead is a 23 year old artist based in the Washington, DC area. She spent four summers interning on Capitol Hill and in 2008 was a press staffer on the Obama Campaign. She graduated with a degree in political science in 2009 and then decided to follow her passion – art.

Alexa has invented a painting technique that makes three dimensional space look flat, blurring the lines between illusion and reality.

Look closely at these paintings – there is a human under all of that paint. Very cool effects indeed.
