Ariana Page Russell:
'My sensitive skin is my canvas': How one woman only has to touch her body to create intimate works of art

A woman has told how uses her rare and ‘embarrassing’ skin condition to produce intimate works of art.

Ariana Page Russell, 34, based in Brooklyn, New York, suffers from dermatographia which means when she rubs or scratches herself a red, swollen imprint is left on the spot.

In a bid to combat stigma, she started photographing the marks on her body - to date her images have been exhibited at galleries across the U.S.

She has since produced wallpaper, collage, video, and temporary tattoos inspired by her skin condition.

Last year she also launched a blog titled ‘dermatographism’ for other sufferers to share their own images and stories.

Concluding, she said: ‘Skin in general I think is really fascinating, it’s our largest organ… it keeps us alive.’

Heitor Magno de Oliveira is a 28 year old artist from Brazil. He specializes in photography manipulation, and is most known for his surreal double-exposure self portraits.

Heitor decided to dedicate his life to art around 5 years ago, but he’s always had a passion for it. When asked what inspired him to begin creating his trippy and distorted creations, Heitor said:

“[I’ve always lived] in an artistic way, [and had an interest in the] feelings and sensations behind visual art. [To] be honest, it is something that [I’ve] always enjoyed… basically, [I enjoy being] free to dream. I like to create my own effects and [I’m always seeking] new techniques and inspirations.”

His contemporary book, Frases vestidas nú corpo, is a collection of poems and photos that offers in-depth look at the unique aspects of his style and aesthetic. He’ll will also be having a featured exhibition at the Museum of Digital Art in Argentina this year.

Some of Heitor’s biggest influences include Quentin Tarantino, Nirvana, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Charles Bukowiski, and David Lynch.

Creative Chocolate Skulls by Ruth and Sira Garcia

Ruth and Sira Garcia are two talented spanish artists : here, they interpret the vanitas in the form of a chocolate. With great attention to detail and a vivid imagination, the two artists had the good idea to associate the shape of the brain to walnut or gelled blackberry shapes.
