Would you believe us if we told you that this model is not wearing any clothes? We are quite sure you wouldn’t because appearances can be deceptive.

This model flaunts herself, but what will grab your eyeballs are not her looks, but her attire, which definitely has something different about it. Rubbing your eyes in wonder?

Starkers, Shadia Elise, has been made to look like the iconic 80s character Marty McFly, played by Michael J Fox. The character is picked from the famous 1985 science fiction movie, Back to the Future.

But incredibly, instead of donning the usual blue jeans and red gilet, the model has been covered head to toe in body paint. The 38-year-old talented body artist and photographer, Paul Roustan chose to do something as incredible as this.

The shoot took place alongside the instantly recognisable car from the film, a DeLorean.

Once I did my first body painting, I was hooked. I was completely entranced by how a model can bring an artwork to life. This one was just fun though. I hope this gives viewers of my generation a little nostalgia, and a good feeling when you think of old memories. For me, the 80s was my favourite decade, and I think there are a lot of people my age that may agree.
Paul Roustan, Body Artist

Paul has been body painting for 13 years, and the shoot was done as part of his promotion for his upcoming 80s show, which is due to be held at the Resin Gallery, California in February 2018.

The nature of Art is such that it blurs lines between appearance and reality, and urges you to accept what is unthinkable.
