These truly stunning ‘live canvasses’ were all the creation of art genius Trina Merry who camouflages her subjects into their surroundings in a nearly Op Art style. Merry uses guerrilla tactics to hand-paint and photographs live painting performances on the streets and different environments all over the world and goes to great lengths of avoiding the authorities, moving traffic, and the weather.

Trina says “Body paint is an ancient art form and the use of ochre on the skin dates back 425,000 years and has a deeper part in all of our cultures than people tend to realize.”

Merry has expanded her camouflague series internationally and her work has been published by Juxatpoz Magazine, TIME Magazine, NY Times, NY Post, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and many more

“Painting on the body creates a special connection to a person that other visual art forms have trouble accomplishing; it’s a distinctly human experience.” – Trina Merry
