When I get a sudden forceful urge to poop while I’m on the train
German artist Gesine Marwedel (previously featured here) views bodypainting as a transformative, and sometimes even therapeutic art form. She excels at using the human form to create the convincing illusion that you’re looking at lifelike animals, plants and abstract - sometimes truly startling - works of art. Marwedel’s models are more than live canvases that she paints for her own artistic purposes, they’re also people interested in expressing themselves by transforming into something else, if only for a little while.
