artful body painting with mud and a bottle

We found this startling image on Roy Arden’s blog...as usual, no provenance. Oh, but the beauty you can create with some mud and a (Coke) bottle…like this curiously chic, modernist pattern stenciled right on.

(We love the idea of our bodies as a canvas).

    Use TinEye to reverse search for image makers.
    This photo is by Kenneth Garrett Photography.
    Be sure to credit photographers and artists.

    Hey, thanks. We tried TinEye when it first launched and didn’t have much success. We try to credit photographer’s and artists but sometimes can’t find the source, so we’ll definitely use this.
