Bodypaint artist Trina Merry holds a B.A. in film and has apprenticed under world renown bodypainter Craig Tracy. She has worked in the art department in Hollywood on major films & tv shows before turning to bodies as her new medium and canvas, describing how bodies “create a special connection to a person that other visual art forms have trouble accomplishing”.
Formerly based in San Francisco she now works in Brooklyn and uses New York City as a backdrop for her meticulously illustrated architectural structures and landmarks, which are carefully painted onto nude female bodies. The Brooklyn Bridge, the Guggenheim Museum or Coney’s Island colourful entrance gates, to mention just a few, have been blended onto human bodies as if they were one.
