Human bodies are the canvas for Artist Trina Merry in an art form of turning bodies into bikes, that has never been attempted before. Models with well sculpted bodies painted in amazing designs have been contorted into various positions to resemble motorbikes. This is the handiwork of Artist Trina Merry of San Francisco, California who has been enamored by dirt bikes, cruisers and sports bikes as much as she is fascinated by the human body and the extent to which it can be bent and stretched to maximum possible limits. The artwork comes to us through this years Progressive International Motorcycle Show.
Such is her body painting commitment that she has made them her topics of art of a different kind by contorting bodies into motor bike shapes, covering them with body paint photographing the models to resemble bike and rider. These designs will be used for an on road motor show as it tours across the United States.
The yoga experts and models are painted with natural and hypoallergenic paints which are safe and easily removable once the photo session is complete. The models once in position are expected to hold this posture for five to six minutes over a period of upto 18 hours. Merry uses brushes and spray cans to paint these bodies which are all completely naked except for patches covering their modesty.
