3D Living Scenes Transformed Into 2D Paintings – Alexa Meade

Alexa Meade compresses reality by covering models in specifically applied paint, making sure to focus on painted shadows and highlights to transform her posed subjects into paintings. Meade’s works, which she has referred to as “reverse trompe l’oeil” combine installation, painting, photography, and even performance, as many of her works are done live and with little room for error.

3D artists should take note and look at more non-photoreal approaches to texturing, and would give a very different style to their work.
