Los Angeles artist Paul Roustan paints on naked people. And naked people let Paul Roustan paint on them because he is one of the world’s best body painting artists.
It was like any other day at the office when Roustan – also a surfer and surf photographer who has an affinity for the ocean – rounded up a few sea goddesses, and through a steady hand and cold mist from his trusty airbrush, morphed their curves into the ocean’s apex predator. Makes sense right?
In his series Sharks Are People Too!, Roustan aimed to delicately personify the often misunderstood and endangered creatures of the depths by mixing in a bit of humor, a hallmark of much of his work.
