In her series ‘Landscapes’ – Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes has mastered the art of camouflage and by using body paint is able to disappear into her surroundings. With the help of her assistants, she paints herself into the background of floral wallpapers. Her dark hair and the whites of the eyes are often the only thing that shows there’s a person hiding.

However, her series called “Landscapes” doesn’t just create a disappearance illusion, it also shows Paredes’ quest for belonging.

“The theme behind all is re-location after displacement and migration and how one has to adjust in order to belong. Tough it is, but it has to be done, without forgetting our origin.

  1. Beyond tattoo!!!


    • I know – aren’t they amazing. You have to wonder who is the real artist, since the gal in the photos or her assistant. It is definitely a collaboration, in my opinion.


  2. The second picture was a little scary.


    • The walls have eyes.
