A Little (Or a Lot) Of Body Paint Turns Humans Into Nature

 Nature is full of inspiring imagery and a dazzling array of beauty and colors. It can stir within each of us a deep connection to this world and to ourselves. To keep the uplifting and picturesque visions of our world and its many gorgeous inhabitants alive and well, even in the midst of modern-day life, most artists take much inspiration from the gorgeous world around us. Nature photography and still-life artworks capture our fellow Earth-dwellers in some deeply original moments. However, body artists, like Johannes Stoetter, seek to capture their spirits within humans. These unique artists use their own bodies as canvases, to show us how the essence of all these natural wonders and technicolor treasures can be found in people.
