In my last article I introduced a contemporary form of tattooing as an expression of body art that has hit the mainstream artist community. Today’s article addresses body painting, but from an entirely different view. This blog is not necessarily fixated on body art, but when an artist is towed in from the outer realms of expression by such an unique interpretation as demonstrated by the work of Johannes Stötter, it merits further attention.
A true artist sees beauty and creativity everywhere. So it goes with the now famous artist Johannes Stötter’s living body of work. No doubt you have seen many of his undertakings on the internet, especially social media where most have gone viral. Stötter uses human bodies to paint and create his images of mind bending illusions. He sees the world unambiguously, and that is what places him and his work center stage with the rest of the fine art community.
