Cecilia Paredes is a Peruvian-born, Philadelphia-based artist who incredibly merges artistic photography with human painting. The contemporary artist is always the main focus of her artwork, even when it is not noticeable at first, she remains the center of it all. You just got to look close to it! Kind of like a way of self portraits, these paintings/photographs are a unique form of art.
Bed of Roses
Her artwork is patterned with beautiful floral prints and Paredes is centered right in the middle of her self portraits work, aesthetically merging with the background. Her body is her canvas. She paints directly onto her own skin. Paint and clothing are what she uses for her modern art, the artist recreates the same pattern used for the background, on her body and on the fabric used.

Sea of Roses
Paredes is like a chameleon, perfectly blending with everything and making herself unnoticeable. Sometimes she leaves her hair exposed, making her presence visible for who lays eyes on it.
Frame after frame, her body remains present. Her body, as a blank canvas later on fully covered in art, serves as an empty vessel to reflect both her surroundings and feelings.
Her art is completely outstanding and very inspiring and I Lobo You is head over heels with it, it’s truly a beautiful and lyrical form of modern art.
