    Naked women are used as paintbrushes by this controversial artist

     

    Albert Zakirov, an artist from the Russian Federation’s Tatarstan Autonomous Republic has an original, albeit controversial painting technique – he uses women’s naked bodies as his paintbrushes.

    Albert Zakirov began drawing and painting at a young age and spent a large portion of his life preparing for art school. After a few months of studying with an exceptional teacher in tenth grade, he gained the requisite knowledge to be admitted to art school, where he quietly learned the fundamentals while experimenting with a variety of strange techniques and mediums. He never graduated from art school, but it was there that he first painted on canvas using a woman’s body, and it was this experience that prompted him to make the technique his own.

    “I did my first body painting’ with a woman when I was in art college, in the 1980s,” Zakirov told SNTAT.  “We rented a room with canvas and paints, and then we fooled around, smearing and painting before throwing away the artwork. At that time this method could not be shown to anyone. ”

    In the year 2,000, the Russian artist remembered his unusual painting technique and painted another picture 3×2-meter artwork using the bodies of two female bodies. He still keeps the piece in his collection, as it marks the start of his unique body painting method.

    If you’re wondering how Albert Zakirov paints with human bodies, the method is simple. He normally begins by putting oil on the body of his human paintbrush to make cleaning simpler, then smears various body parts with acrylic paints, picks up the person, and applies them to the canvas. Zakirov does not primarily employ the model, sometimes adding his own touches to the artwork, but he claims that the unusual brush adds a certain spirit to the painting.

    “When I lift a woman, energy is exchanged during the interaction of two bodies,” Zakirov claims. “Idea, color composition – everything comes together during the process. Before the arrival of the model, I do not know what I will paint on the canvas. I don’t prepare in advance, the models inspire me.”

    Interestingly, the Kazan-based painter says that he never selects his human brushes. They find out about him through acquaintances, from local galleries, or from the news, and they contact him. There is no audition or casting process.

    In recent years, he started asking the women to wear ski masks over their faces, to avoid personal problems. Even if they are interested in being used to create art, their boyfriend, or future boyfriend may not share their enthusiasm, so concealing their identity prevents any future misunderstandings.

    Albert Zakirov only employs women as paintbrushes, primarily because they are lighter, but he did utilise a pair of dancers, a man and a woman, between 2008 and 2009. He was slim, with a flexible and graceful body.

    According to the Russian artist, art collectors from Russia and other European nations are interested in his abstract paintings created with human brushes.
