Cecilia Paredes is a Peruvian-born, Philadelphia-based artist who mixes photography, painting and performance arts in order to develope a unique art form. She is the main subject of her own richly patterned artworks, yet her figure aesthetically disappears.

Instead of using canvas, Paredes paints directly onto her own skin. She uses paint and clothing patterns and blends herself into floral backgrounds like a chameleon. Sometimes she leaves her hair exposed, making her presence visible for the spectator.

“I wrap, cover, or paint my body with the same pattern of the material and re-present myself as part of that landscape,” she says. “Through this act, I am working on the theme of building my own identification with the entourage or part of the world where I live or where I feel I can call home. My bio has been described as nomadic so maybe this is also a need of addressing the process of constant relocation.”

Her performance leaves audiences mesmerized. Therefore, we invite you to see it for yourself and enjoy!
