"When I was studying at university, I wanted to make anything without being tied up with specific materials," the artist told us. "At that point, I started to be interested in the materials and production method of special effects makeup. I like to create things realistically, so I thought if I learn special effects makeup where they create human skin like its real, I would be able to pursue realistic expressions."

"Nowadays, you can see many different kinds of expressions on social media from all over the world," talking about ideas, Amazing JIRO told Bored Panda. "I usually check out photos and videos on social media and imagine, "If I were to create this, I would do this and that." I think the accumulation of that leads to new ideas." The themes that the artist likes to explore? "Any theme, but I would like to create artwork that I feel that only I could create."

It would be nice to have at least 2 pictures, the one with the proper pose, as shown, and one with the model acting normal, smiling with both eyes open for instance. It would be great to compare!

This kind of art makes me wish there was a body paint subcommunity to furries. Masks can't convey the same impact as faces!

Looks like an advertisement for the Broadway Lion King show. I'd watch it!

I'd love it if this turned into a real makeup trend. Flower crowns are so last season, this year it's all about flower paints.

Even with the make-up, you can see how handsome the model is.

Bella questa , dà un' immagine da periodo post atomico , comunque sono tutte belle nel loro genere , definirne una brutta sarebbe un sacrilegio , certamente una persona può avere i suoi gusti ma quando si comprende l'originalità di tutto non ci possono essere dubbi in proposito , complimenti all'Artista !
