Italian born graffiti street artist has turned his hands from wall art to body art. London based Hunto has been experimenting and exploring the art form of body painting with sensational results.
Hunto was first inspired by Pablo Picasso at a very early age, and combined with the magnetic attraction of the graffiti scene, he has developed an unmistakable style, full of colour, bold shapes and movement.
Hunto is the backbone of the street art explosion in trendy Shoreditch, and has huge projects across London. Look up and you will also find his art in the highest unapproachable places, staying true to his graffiti days.
“It is not a big challenge for me to paint on the body, it’s just a little different because I don’t use my spray cans as usual.”
Hunto’s art is an ongoing exploration of the intertwined themes of eroticism and human relationships and using skin as a blank canvas is an extension to his visual language.
“It is nice to follow the curves and forms of the human body. It’s like designing garments to wear, making the body interact with something.”
Hunto’s unique style is able transgress across any medium, with the body form bringing his visions to life.
“I am painting on something already incredibly beautiful in its essence. The rest is just adding to the beauty, this is the difference from my usual wall or canvas works.”
In addition to painting his signature style, Hunto experimented with the deconstruction of his artwork, creating a beautiful marble effect.
With fashion bloggers crazy for Hunto’s latest vision we expect this to be another exciting venture for this passionate artist.
