Spot the Artist! Cecilia Paredes Master of Disguise

Like most artists, Cecilia Paredes tends to get lost in her work… in this case most literally. The Peruvian artist uses her body as a canvas by applying body paint to camouflage herself into a series of vibrant, intricate wallpaper designs.

With the aid of assistants, Paredes meticulously paints an disguises her own body to allow her to fit seamlessly into each of her portraits. Paredes explains her technique as a way of making herself part of the landscape ïn a quest of belonging.

“The theme behind all is re-location after displacement and migration and how one has to adjust in order to belong. Tough it is, but it has to be done, without forgetting our origin.
