This Local Artist Makes Naked People Disappear Into Famous Places Through Body Painting

Local artist and body painter Trina Merry uses her art to make people disappear against famous backdrops. Painting the subjects with what the camera would see directly behind them, she is able to somewhat "hide" the naked bodies with her skills, a precise camera angle, and a little bit of flat lighting. LEarn more about the artist and her work in this short video from the New York Post.

While most artists want to stand out, Tina Merry [sic] has a knack for blending in. Watch as this 38-year-old body painter creates amazing camouflage pieces in front of the world’s most famous locations. Her stunning photographs — which sell for $99 to $2,000 — feature models who are scantily clad or even completely naked. “In New York, we have the Top Free Act, so men and women can be topless,” she told The Post. “And if it’s for the purpose of art, people can be fully nude.”
