I believe that art shouldn’t be limited to canvases or bound to be in only indoor spaces. I make up the art as I go, because I believe that the present is as important as any other moment. To me, art is about self-discovery and sharing it with people.

People know me for my live bodypainting in the streets of New York City. In the summer of 2011, police arrested me along with several of my models. But with the help of lawyer Ron Kuby and the NYCLU, the city has finally acknowledged that public nudity is legal if it’s part of an artistic expression.
