Painted Bodies

Trina Merry is an American artist specialized in painted bodies.

Body painted with a snail motif.

She resides in San Francisco and is the founder of the Art Alive Gallery, where she has been developing her artistic work since 2011.

The painter's appreciation for this form of art is expressed in her own words:

The surface of my art are living, breathing human beings, making them a relevant and immediate medium. I use hypoallergenic non-toxic paints, applied with brush, broom, and airbrush. The works are ephemeral, like the sand paintings of the Tibetans, beginning to transform as soon as I stop painting, changing their texture and color...
