'A painted surface is a real, living form.'
Kazimir Severinovich Malevich
Although Easter is officially over, I couldn't help but connect this series of images to the holiday. The lines and curves of Sergey's incredible body are of course more visually stunning than that of an egg. They provide a sensual canvas for the vibrant colors and brilliant designs which instantly and powerfully grab the viewers focus and attention.
'A great collaboration with two geniuses.'
The two genius' Sergey is referencing are photographer,friend and frequent collaborator Richard Rothstein, and artist Charles Zambrano. I have been fortunate to have featured Charles' body painting previously, but this time, the canvas of Sergey' beautiful body is covered by UV Neon Black Light fluorescent acrylic paint.
Currently, Sergey is spending a lot time behind the lens, but thankfully for us, has continued to model, especially when there's a unique concept to be captured. Richard Rothstein is never one to waste time on anything concept or theme that's not unique and worthy of his time and energy.
Whenever I feature a series involving body painting, I always enjoy the process piece with behind the scenes shots of the creative painting process. Check out some BTS shots on PAGE 2 HERE:
