The artist:

Vargas’ work is improvised within a 7hrs limit, its executed according to the model’s body shape and impersonating movements. Inspired by Salvador Dali, Albert Vargas, Rene Magritte, Van Gogh, his paintings on bodies are done mostly with his signature brush line.
Capturing a moment of this artistic illusion is a challenge and Vargas combines his photographs and paintings to create his work.
Bodypainting, photography and photo manipulation uniquely combined, takes living canvas to a different level and becomes a masterpiece preserved from extinction in a photograph. It’s a new art form in the world of body painting he likes to call it “Surreal Body Art ”.
