Bollywood actress Veena Malik allows Finnish artist Vesa Kivinen to paint landscapes directly on to her skin
Pakistan star volunteered her body as a canvas
Bollywood actress Veena Malik has collaborated with the Finnish artist Vesa Kivinen to produce a stunning series of portraits.
The Pakistan-born star of Bollywood hit First Time volunteered her body as a canvas, allowing Kivinen to paint richly coloured landscape images directly on to her skin.
The five artworks are described as a “dialogue between three dimensional physiology and gesture coupled with the aesthetics of two dimensional painting that coalesce into a singular object of art” and are said to “explore themes from ancient & religious traditions to our contemporary global melting pot”.
Describing the artwork, Malik said: “I feel very glad that Finland’s well known visual artist Vesa Kivinen had called me to work with him. I am here just for the love of art.”
