"Body to Art Project" – PERFORMANCE HUMAN ART

“Body to Art" is an artistic project by Monica Argentino, where the human body is used as a canvas on which to express her own sensitivity and creativity. The body as a subject and object points to a complete and maximized artistic expression. The artistic project consists in painting naked bodies of models but also "normal" people bodies, with common aesthetic canons, to provoke immediate reactions and intense emotions, which experiences both the artist and the painted people and, obviously, the public. Gestures, sounds and colors merge to give life to an exciting scenario between images and imaginary, entirely performing live under the eyes of the public.
