Do you remember the amazing body art illusions by Craig Tracy? It seems that Craig has a competitor – 25-year-old German artist Gesine Marwedel. From flamingo to iguana, she can turn people into illusion art using special paint that is not harmful to the body of her models.

The body painting artist is certified in rehabilitation science, and after working in an orphanage in India for several years she is now a speech therapist. Besides optical illusions on bodies, the young woman does henna painting, wall painting, and paintings on canvas, switching between realism and surrealism in her cool artworks. Gesine admits that what she loves about body drawings is how it helps people rediscover their beauty. It sounds like these illusion paintings are good therapy as well!
