Body art project by Valeria Kutsan
Body art project by Valeria Kutsan. Russian stylist, makeup artist and master of body art Valeria Kutsan works in a creative duo with a professional photographer Alexander Khokhlov. Their body art is always surprising and impressive. It seems we’ve seen all about what a painting on the body is and we are no longer surprised by Kandinsky on the back of the girls’ heads or realistic animals on the faces of the models. However, please be assured that if you have never met with the works of Alexander Khokhlov and Valeria Kutsan, you’re going to be surprised at what they do. In this selection of amazing body art works you can meet with an optical illusion that through body painting converted people in paintings of impressionists, expressionists, pop art artists and other members of the avant-garde currents. This body art project is called “2D or not 2D”.
