Worldly Mind

Worldly Mind....Amazing!!!! "Not only has the artist managed to paint a realistic map of the world on this man's head, but he has also succeeded at painting an amazing galaxy pattern. This artwork is from Johannes Stötter's series titled 'Gaia'..."

Human World

This project is part of the artist's 'Human World' series, and the artist has done a fantastic job at camouflaging this person into the liquor cabinet behind them. The artist has traveled all over the world for his famous body art paintings, including: Austria, Italy, USA, Turkey, and Germany.

River Boy

Water is a tricky substance to imitate, as it involves varying colors and numerous different shades and hues. Johannes Stötter certainly isn't scared though, and he gave it his best shot for this body art project. We think he succeeded 100% though - just look at the way the boy's face seems to blend perfectly into the background.

Desert Gardening

Here is another example of a child being painted to blend perfectly into the landscape. We think the artist has achieved the perfect camouflage with the girl's desert-pattern clothing. How much fun it must be to witness one of these projects unfolding - from the painting stage, to the positioning and photographing stage.

Blending In

This photograph is amazing, we can hardly believe our eyes! The artist has managed to paint the skin and clothing of this boy so the he perfectly blends in with his surroundings of this beautiful green field and the bright blue sky. Johannes Stötter, you never cease to amaze us! This would have to be our most favorite bodypainting project by far!

Anatomy

Since 2011, Johannes Stötter has been holding anatomy-related bodypainting workshops at Yoni-academy in Innsbruck, Austria. Here is a breathtaking example of one of the artist's anatomy body art paintings. A lot of detail and research has gone into this project, and the overall effect is mesmerizing!

Pu Gong Ying Tu

Pu Gong Ying Tu is an interactive painting of a dandelion field. When you blow on the white puffs, the seeds disperse and generate new flowers. These flowers begin as yellow dandelions, but after a few moments bloom into responsive white seed puffs.

The piece is part of a series called Programmable Paintings, which blend traditional elements of painting–such as color, texture, composition–with the intelligence and interactivity of electronics and computation.
