Alexa Meade is a 23-year-old artist based in Washington, DC area. She spent four summers interning on Capitol Hill and in 2008 was a press staffer on the Obama Campaign. She graduated in 2009 from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY with a bachelor’s degree in political science. She never attended art school nor has she ever taken advanced painting courses. In August 2008, Meade began to experience a new genre of painting.

She applies acrylic body paint to the surfaces of people, objects, and walls in a broad brushstroke that mimics the appearance of brushwork in a painting in a technique that she innovated. When the three-dimensional tableau is viewed in a two-dimensional photograph, it appears to be an oil painting. After 9 months of practice, she was able to develop a process for painting on people and unveiled her “Reverse Trompe L’Oeil” installation in October, 2009. The follow are some of her works, are you deceived?
