Artist Masterfully Turns Humans Into Animals Using Body Paint

Most people use makeup to be seen, but U.S. artist Shannon Holt takes this idea in a different direction, using paint to turn people into canvases for her beautiful and elegant animal paintings.

You hear a song once live — you have that one beautiful experience and then you have the remembrance of it with a recording,” Holt told the Daytone Beach News-Journal, describing the transience of her paintings. “Body painting is the same. It’s probably the closest art form to music there is.

Holt has a diverse artistic background, having painted on everything from canvas and paper to wood and metal. She says it was this search for different surfaces to work with that led her to try painting on skin for the first time.
