Alexa Meade is a painter who has the ability to bend shapes in incredible ways. The following photos that you see aren’t actually paintings that you hang on a wall, but are in fact, real people stylized to resemble 2D images.

Her astonishing works have been featured in such places as the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in DC, the Saatchi Museum in London, even the Ingo Seufert Gallery for Contemporary Photography in Germany among many others.

Alexa’s paintings are rendered using simple acrylic paints. Her technique, elongated brushstrokes that create expressionistic style.












Even if Alexa’s paintings weren’t real, they’d still look alive. Her use of carefully placed brushstrokes creates very real, yet flat colors and patterns that pop with just the right amount of color.
