Body Painter Transforms Humans Into Breathtaking Animal Portraits

There’s more to these beautiful animals than meets the eye. It’s actually a human body covered intricately in paint.

The stunning work was created by artist Shannon Holt, a body painter from Florida who’s known for her ability to transform the human body into a canvas for beautiful art.

These pieces are part of Holt’s “Florida Wildlife Series,” a collection of several animal portraits, all painstakingly drawn on human bodies. Each portrait is said to have taken Holt about six to 12 and a half hours to complete, according to Caters News.

In a May interview with the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Holt explained what it is about body painting as a medium that she loves so much.

“You can have a really beautiful work that transforms the body into a human sculpture or abstract piece that touches on art history, or is a master copy of an Italian Renaissance painting,” she told the news outlet.

She added that she loves the “ephemeral” nature of body painting. “It’s here and then it’s gone,” she said. “It’s kind of like ourselves – we’re here on the Earth and then we’re gone, and it’s beautiful.”
