Dibujo con lapiceros en gel sobre el rostro.
Pinpin Co es una artista nacida en China, estudió arquitectura antes de desarrollar su proyecto de tinta corporal. Utiliza un lapiceros de gel para convertir a sus modelos en temporales obras de arte que se quitan en segundos.
Ella considera su trabajo un proceso terapéutico, capturando las cicatrices mentales y físicas de aquellos sobre los que pinta. (Tomado de ArtistaDay)
[…] Working closely with her subjects, she often spends over 5 hours drawing intricately on their faces and striving to bring out the deeper aspects of their inner and outer landscapes. The results of her work, created with a fine 0.38mm gel ink pen, are often beautiful and sometimes a bit disturbing.
In one of her recent works, above, Pinpin reconnected with her father whom she had never lived with, drawing on his face and bringing out one of perhaps her most moving pieces.
Unlike a tattoo, Pinpin’s work is by nature, temporary; only remaining for our eyes through her talent for beautiful photography. For this reason, her photographic choices say nearly as much as those made in her illustrations, dictating for viewers how they witness her decorated subjects. Especially stunning are her images with stark, black backgrounds: they pop her characters forward, emphasizing their drawn nature to such an extent that we almost lose the sense that these are real-life people with ink on their faces. ”
