Artists Makes Real People Look Like Paintings – And the Effect Is Way Eerie [PICTURES]

painted people
Alexa Meade

How would you react if a painting suddenly came to life? Alexa Meade‘s painted people look like works of art but move like humans — making for an eerie sight.

Whereas most artists would just paint their subjects on a canvas, Meade actually turns her subjects INTO the canvas. She creates life-size installations that are shockingly exact in their similarity to actual acrylic paintings. Upon first glance it’s almost impossible to tell that there are real people under all that paint.

Check out more of Meade’s works below. You can see her full portfolio on her site or Flickr page.
