    waj by wyusuf | 02-02-17

    This week Emma popped into Seed Creativity to speak to our BAPSCI learners.

    Emma Fay is known for her concept body artistry, using paint on the human canvas to create artworks that challenge visual perception. Inspired by evolution and origins, her art conveys notions of surrealism and symbolic expressionism through her manipulation of the human form. Successfully combining her artistic, theatrical and business background with professional experience within the hair and beauty industry, Emma has gained notable recognition as one of the world’s most accomplished body artists. In addition to fine art, Emma’s work has been applied to more commercial domains, creating captivating artwork for editorial and advertorial use, both as photographed body art and live installations.read more
