Oriental Rug Camouflage

"Oriental rugs can have very unique and tricky patterns, but as soon as you add a person into the mix, you've got yourself a real challenge! Johannes Stötter was able to successfully mimic and copy the pattern of the oriental rug onto the person, and the end result is seamless! The artist has been entering body art competitions since 2001, so he has some experience up his sleeve!"

Hidden Wooden Man

"This project could not have turned out more perfect, wouldn't you agree? To be able to camouflage a person as they stand in front of a pile of wooden logs is not an easy task, but as usual, Johannes Stötter makes it look like a 'piece of cake'. The patience of the artist's subjects must also be commended - We can only imagine how long they must stay in a stationary position for!"

Man vs Violin

"This artwork is absolutely amazing! From afar, it is impossible to even see the human figure present in the photograph. It would not be easy incorporating a human body into a photograph of a stationary object, but artist Johannes Stötter seems to do it with ease. We wonder how long it takes all up to paint the person and position them correctly?"

Fall Leaves

"Wow, if this breathtaking work of body art does not impress you, then we don't know what will! Firstly, the artist has successfully blended the person's body into the surrounding fall leaves - We actually had trouble determining where the real leaves end and the person's body begins! It isn't hard to see why the artist was titled the Bodypainting World Champion in 2012."

Spring Petals

"This photograph is another series in the artist's body art portrayals of the seasons, and we love this one that features beautiful spring petals. Not only is Johannes Stötter an award-winning bodypaint artist, but he is also a talented musician. He can sing, whistle, and play various instruments such as the violin, bouzouki and guitar."

"The artist also loves to delve into each season, depicting people as realistic works of art. We think this one in particular has produced a fantastic effect, and we especially love the appearance of the cracked soil. Johannes Stötter fuses this human with the nature that surrounds him, and his talent is truly to be commended."

Watermelon Head

Watermelon Head...."Johannes Stötter studied at the University of Innsbruck in Austria, and since then the artist has developed a whole range of artistic techniques and tricks! You'd be forgiven for having to look at this photograph numerous times before determining which watermelon is actually a person's head painted to represent one!"

Pineapple Woman

"We absolutely love this body art project by the Italian artist, and it isn't hard to see why! While the 'human pineapple' isn't exactly difficult to determine from the other pineapples, you have to admit - the artist has done a fantastic job making this person's head to appear as a pineapple that is as realistic as possible!"
