Outrageous Trompe L’Oeil (or Mixed Media) Installations by Alexa Meade

While Alexa Meade‘s incredible application of paint strokes to live subjects is aptly referred to as “3D Acrylic Painting,” this description doesn’t do justice to the wild, electrical synapse-firing pleasure invoked for the viewer. Is it mixed media? Is it performance art? Painting? Photography? The answer to each is plainly “yes,” but more importantly, these successfully hybrided trompe l’oeil pieces gift the viewer with a mind-stretching, category-busting experience that reminds us all of the creative power of our minds.

Beautiful work aside, the artist’s real gift, executed with such effectiveness, is one of penetrating inspiration for work in all visual fields.
