More About Joanne Gair & Heidi Klum
We're all familiar with trompe l'oeil painting, art that fools the eye. Renowned body painter and artist Joanne Gair takes the art of trompe l'oeil to an entirely new level with Paint A 'Licious. But instead of disguising walls or canvas, Gair completely redecorates her human subjects.
In the fictional Paint A'Licious Salon, Gair invites us to experience our wildest dreams through paint. Washboard abs are achieved without sit-ups, and an hourglass figure requires no liposuction at this specialty salon. By painstakingly painting her subjects-a process that takes many hours-Gair blends them (nearly imperceptibly) into the background scene.
You'll be scratching your head in amazement at the fantastic optical illusions Gair creates. A painted child "disappears" under the Christmas tree, barely discernible from the wrapped gifts. A naughty nurse in a uniform made only of paint arrives to cheer up a patient. And are those plaid biker shorts or just a tartan paint job under that Scotsman's kilt?
Paint A 'Licious is the book everyone will want on their coffee tables
