Paintrealism (a.k.a. Acrylic on Flesh)

Alexa Meade is not your average painter.

Her paintings are heavy. 145 pounds heavy. Her medium’s acrylic. But her canvas? Human flesh.

It’s her photography we’re in love with. Combining paint, art direction, and the lens, they’re unlike any photographs you’ve seen.

Her two-dimensional subjects escape their canvas confines and her camera follows close behind, allowing us a peek into a world where art really does come to life.
