Australian-born artist Mik Shida and his girlfriend Zheani Sparkes have created a bizarre street art exhibition on the walls of Melbourne, by using unique paintbrushes – their naked bodies.

The couple were inspired by French artist Yves Klein, who used women as human paintbrushes for his live paintings, ‘anthropometries’ in the 1960s. They painted their bodies with blue house paint and left abstract imprints on white walls across twenty locations in the city. The duo plan to create their art in many more locations.
