With zips, power plugs, laces and buttons adorning their bodies, these young models look like something out of a travelling freak show. But they are in fact the latest walking exhibits of Japanese artist Chooo-San’s incredible illusionary makeup art. Bored with digitally enhanced pictures, the artist decided to see how far she could push her limits without technology – with impressive results.

“I don’t really have a reason why I started doing those pictures. But I guess I was a little sick of everyone making pictures with their computers and wanted to see how far I can go without those technologies such as Photoshop. My works are all done with acrylic paints. They are all painted on skin directly and I don’t use computers or anything to change the picture afterwards,” says Chooo-San.
