When we first wrote about artist and illusionist Hikaru Cho, she was painting food to look like other food. Luckily for us, she's been creating new work ever since, and her portfolio now includes some mind-bending body painting, showcasing some fascinating -- if slightly unsettling -- stop-motion videos.
Cho also creates still images of painted bodies, and they're no less surreal. Creating negative space with black paint on a black background, she can completely alter the shape of bodies, or make parts of them disappear completely! Refreshingly, neither the photos nor the videos have been digitally altered in any way.
