Artist and photographer Alexa Meade creates beautiful works of art on very unique canvases. Meade uses human subjects and everyday objects to create stunning 3D painting that, when photographed, mimic 2D fine art. The works remind us of disappearing acts of "the Invisible Man" Liu Bolin, only Bolin has a team of helpers and his goal is to blend in with his environment and Meade's subjects are the focus of the photos. Watch and listen to he video below as Meade gives a TED Talk about her work and how she manages to paint directly onto human skin and food to make them look like masterpieces:
