Phil Hansen- Body Art and Pointillism

Amazing art and amazing artist, Phil Hansen.  The following video covers a series of his projects.



His breakthrough piece was a time-lapse video of a project, Influences, in which he painted thirty pictures on his torso, one atop another.  Each image, a piece of his life.  At project end, he peeled the layers off and cut out his own silhouette.  

The original video is below:

Well, all things are a path to epiphany and enlightenment, but that path is particularly lovely and impressive!

Thanks for sharing, Erik!
