NEW: Prints of the above artwork now available!

Also purchase a bigger jpg version to see how it is made.

This is a quick Flesh and Acrylic demo I made for the Catalan
public television "TV3" (Spain). The work in progress was filmed
and the video report was broadcasted the 25th of November 2011
along with a short documentary about Art and Surrealism in Belgium.

If you wish you can also view this other video showing the making of.

As always in "Flesh and Acrylic", I worked in a wild and intuitive way.

Model: Julia. She is a journalist and a model in her spare time...

PS: I left the newspapers in the background on purpose.

The above picture and other images from the "Flesh and Acrylic"
series have been published in The Sun and The Telegraph in
December 2011.

this is a direction that I had not anticipated. it is fresh and energetic. I do not know how one could actually incorporate the newspaper into the artwork but this piece is all the more amazing from the benefit of the newspaper and the brush strokes transcending the confines of the canvas. it's a brilliant perception to see that incorporation. I also was impressed with the decision to leave part of her flesh exposed. and beyond that I am quite taken with the idea of creative juice so to speak as if the form or figure of the woman is being impregnated with the artwork. really think you are on to something genial with these physical meets paint pieces. much success... this is a great direction and I hope you reap also
the financial benefits too. brilliant stuff. I have seen something similar from a couple artists, but I very much like your fresh take. that is why I gave only four stars for originality. one is the Japanese artist who disappears into the paintings. and there is another female artist who is making her models disappear inside her paintings. I think your work is a bit more avante garde than the more classical approach of the female artist. sorry her name escapes me at the moment. anyway, congrats on this foray into new territory. I think it is brilliant.

I love all of the acrylic pieces I've seen from you... but this one really messes with my head. Her right side is so defined, so distinct, yet the left seems to blend right in with the wall!... Amazing.

Wow. I have been watching you for a while now, and all of your Flash and Acrylic pieces are absolutely amazing, but this one...this one just blew me away. Simply flabbergasting.
I can't tell wether she is getting out of the "painting", or being absorbed within it. It is interesting how this is up to everyone to chose how they want to see this piece: escaping or being absorbed, caught back in the painting...or maybe both. :)
Your and the model's patience, the creativity, imagination and the hard work...just..wow

Wonderful, you never cease to dazzle me :clap:

Wow ! Your work is truly impressive and inspiring ! When seeing the set-up from the side (in your photo report), it is hard to picture such a final result... Did you use some light to help the transition between your model and the background ?
