Body Painting Artist Emma Hack Goes Pop!

This is my third post on the jaw-dropping work of Australian body artist, Emma Hack .

Body Painting Goes Pop!

I continue to be amazed at her seamless combining of the human body with backgrounds. Emma is the artist behind the famous Goyte music video and the Car Crash image made of 17 painted bodies for South Australia’s Motor Accident Commission.

Pop Art Body Painting

POP! explores Emma’s fascination with the pop art genre – a fun, modern day approach into the comic-inspired work of Roy Lichtenstein. Emma’s heroines are not helpless however, they are strong women.
