Women Tear Themselves Apart In Mind-Bending Body Art By Chilean Artist

ADVERTISEMENT

Jeampiere Dinamarca Poque is a 29-year-old artist from Santiago, Chile, who paints women in disturbing ways. The artist creates optical illusions by painting part of the female models’ body the same color as the background, allowing him to create the impression that the women are tearing themselves apart. When the final photos are taken, the optical illusion is complete.

“The girl cut in two occurred to me when I was about to paint,” Poque told the Daily Mail. “I started without any real plan of what I wanted to create. It was a momentary thought that sparked the illusion drawing idea…[and] I was able to get the result I wanted, the woman tearing herself apart. Photography is also integral to making this idea work, getting the angles of the shots right makes the body art come alive.”

“The girl cut in two occurred to me when I was about to paint”

“I always have new body painting ideas, it just takes me one moment to think. I’m used to improvising, I like the spontaneity of things born from creativity,” Poque told Bored Panda

“I started without any real plan of what I wanted to create”

How long does it take to finish one of these cool drawings? “It depends on the piece, it can take from 1 to 7 hours”

“Most of my paintings are created in the spur of the moment”

“The truth is, my life still remains the same [after becoming an artist]. I live in Chile and art is not considered so valuable”

“It is important to be real and true to yourself, and in doing so be free”

“Maybe if I could live in another country where my unique art would be appreciated, then my life could really change”

“I was able to get the result I wanted, the woman tearing herself apart”

“I also create street art, some works have never been done before”

“The environment where I paint is really important….it was vital to get a strong sense of the skin tearing”

“I painted some pornstars like Sasha Grey, Stoya, Hitomi Tanaka or Remy LaCroix looking like saints or nuns”

“Photography is also integral to making this idea work”

“Another piece of street art I’ve created is Marcel Duchamp masturbating in the middle of the streets”

“[G]etting the angles of the shots right makes the art work come alive”

Everyone has a right to her own opinion, and here's mine: The paintings of the women tearing themselves in two are very disturbing. (Interestingly, most of the paintings shown here are not in that category.) I'm all for pushing boundaries and expressing one's self, and I wouldn't censor this guy or any other artist for the world, but I hope he and his models will think twice before the next time they set out to create art that shows such pain, self-loathing and self-destruction. It's sad!

It’s also very real....more real then most people want to talk about, more real then people want to admit. This is the silent pain that no one notices, or wants to notice. This way, it’s in your face. You see it...you have to acknowledge it’s presance. The artist is providing a window into a place that is already there....just no one wants to see it.

That's good if YOU don't, just stop entitling yourself like I'm a... or As an/a..., It's annoying and no one cares. I'm all for opinions but entitling is a boring and predicable. Did I mention that no one cares about your gender?
