Brilliant Art Composed Of Naked Bodies
Angelo Musco, a New York-based artist, is doing amazing things with photography and creating interesting works of art that teeter on mosaic-style and illusion-based art. Musco takes photographs of naked human bodies and then digitally forms an intriguing visual to resemble scenes from the natural world, such as tree roots, bird nests, beehives, a swarm of fish and more. Musco’s photoshoots have been known to include dozens of naked models and volunteers, all of which are repeated digitally (sometimes over the course of years) to create the illusion of depth. In the work entitled “Tehom”, Musco used between 150,000-200,000 naked bodies, most of which were actually photographed nude under water; and over 1 million bodies for his work entitled “Xylem”. Musco’s work is printed on numerous pages and then assembled on large gallery walls to create the final image. His work is tremendously moving when experienced in its intended larger-than-life size.
