The internet has been awesome for amateur artists everywhere. Now anybody anywhere can upload their painting, photographs, videos, or writing to the internet for the world to see.
Fortunately for everyone, that means a lot of less conventional artists get more exposure. There’s probably no better example of this than a Japanese artist I stumbled upon recently.
The artist, who goes by “Chooooosan” on Tumblr, does body painting. Not the kind of body painting meant for little kids (although, getting Spiderman facepaint is pretty awesome), but something much more surreal.
Chooooosan adds extra eyes to faces, eyes, arms, and wherever else she can. Facial features frequently move around when Chooooosan is around.
But she doesn’t stop there. Not content with moving around facial features, Chooooosan tacks on foreign objects to the body. A zipper running down an arm, a battery case — nothing is off-limits.
Lots of her art borders on disturbing. Seeing a five-eyed woman with an elongated mouth is off-putting, to say the least.
But no matter how disturbed you might be by her paintings, there’s no denying that she’s talented. Her work borders on photorealism and makes you look twice.
Unfortunately, she doesn’t post new creations too often. But you can check out her Tumblr for all of her work and any new updates.
