You could say that artist Cynthia Fleischmann views the world differently than others. “I’m inspired by so many different environments,” said the Miami-based artist. “Interestingly enough, I actually visualize a person painted into my surroundings a lot,” she told Women in the World. Fleischmann’s specialty is Bodypaintography, the art of painting nude subjects into landscapes, creating a connection between the two. “It’s really liberating, you know at first you’re shy, but once there’s a thin layer of paint on the body, it’s like wearing a leotard and I see such a transformation,” she said.
Women in the World caught up with Fleischmann as she prepared a recent project that involved blending a female subject into a windowed rooftop. Watch the transformation in the video above.
