Mind-Bending Body Painting Work by Craig Tracy

Mind-Bending Body Painting Work by Craig Tracy
by ibby Tue, 07/17/2012 - 03:11 Craig Tracy, a New Orleans native, has been a professional artist since the age of sixteen. Never satisfied with conventional contemporary art, Craig was always searching for a form of expression that would amplify his unique creative perspective eventually leading him to take his expertise in bodypainting into the realm of fine art. His work encompasses a bevy of techniques from traditional paintbrush for the majority of the work mixed with airbrush, finger-painting, sponging, splatter and dripping as part of the process as well. Often inspired by a specific body's shape or perhaps a unique pose, Craig takes inspiration from daily doses of culture, nature and intellectual constructs. We hope you have as much fun as we did in trying to decipher the living from the faux in this visually stunning gallery.
