Lifelike acrylic pictures

©Alexa Meade

Wonderfully detailed acrylic pictures are what 29 year old artist Alexa Meade produces. Wait: paintings that move when you touch them – because they’re mad out of real people!

With her new Trompe-L’Oeil technique the american girl has succeeded in making three dimensional objects look like two dimensional pictures on paper. Only if you take a closer look (or walk around the object, if possible) you can see that the models where give a kind of second skin with a brush, that gives them a completely new look and identity.

It is worth having a peek at her gallery on Flickr, where the process of development of the artworks has been documented.
