Hikaru Cho is a Japanese artist whose 3D body paintings have been circulating online as of late. With acrylic paints, Cho uses the human body as her canvas; painting zippers, lacesand buttons directly onto our skin as if they were a garment. She also adds sockets and plugs to our bodies to make it seem like we’re cyborgs. Cho was born in Japan and was raised speaking Japanese, but she holds a Chinese passport. Her work often explores the sensation of being different to other people, something she herself experiences in Japan.
Here are some of Hikari Cho’s Trippy 3D Body Paintings:
