Body of work

Can you see the painted bodybuilder in the barely-there bikini?

U.K.-based freelance makeup artist Carolyn Roper has become an internet sensation thanks to her “urban camouflage” images, in which she paints naked people to blend into their city settings.

Now, she’s participating in the British series Naked and Invisible, a collection of shorts in which the artist helps people hide in pain sight. Then they start popping out and surprising pedestrians and scaring the children.

One of her subjects is a 27-year-old fitness trainer named Ashley Lewis, who wanted to be part of the show since his physique makes him stand out in a crowd.

“The way I look makes me stand out,” he says. “People look at my arms. I think every guy wants to have a six-pack or some sort of definition in their stomach.”

Here’s what he looked like before the transformation:

It took five hours for Roper to paint Lewis’s body. By the time she finished, Lewis perfectly melded into a supermarket’s produce section.
