Body Painting Film

Painting Gotye: A Q&A With the Aussie Body-Painting Artist Behind the "Somebody I Used to Know" Video The amazing metamorphosis that takes place in the video is thanks to Australian artist Emma Hack, whose extensive experience as a 'skin illustrator' caught the attention of the video's director Natasha Pincus. Hack, an Adelaide-based artist, is well known in Australia and internationally for her extraordinary photos of painted bodies camouflaged against often complex background images. If you are one of the more than 200 million people who have viewed the film clip for the Gotye song "Somebody That I Used to Know" you will be familiar with the extraordinary transformation of the bodies of the Belgian-Australian musician and New Zealand singer/songwriter Kimbra into amazing works of art that gradually fade into a background image until both are totally camouflaged.
