Camouflaged Self Portraits by Cecilia Paredes

Camouflaged Self Portraits by Cecilia Paredes

Is worth seeing again excellent body paintings of Cecilia Paredes (Peruvian, b.1950)

(previously). She is contemporary performance and installation artist, who is best known for her unusual work in which she uses her own body as a canvas for body paint. Her last name, Paredes, which means walls in Spanish, perfectly suits her fascination with turning herself into a human chameleon and melting herself into the walls.
