See How Body Paint Turned Naked Women Into New York City Landmarks

City chameleons

It’s easy for New Yorkers to feel like they are invisible in such a big city. Artist Trina Merry took this concept literally by using body paint to transform topless models into New York City landscapes.

“I wanted to engage the city and understand it and make some observations,” Merry told the AP. “So instead of a person right in front of the Empire State building or the Statue of Liberty, they’re softly in the background, and you’ve got more of a reflective view of the person within the landscape.”

Angle was everything when camouflaging each model into the landscape. It took six hours to complete each “work.”

Merry is a body-paint artist who seamlessly camouflages her semi-nude models into New York City’s skyline, blending them into Central Park, Coney Island and other famous landmarks.
