pink flamingo day

I'm mad about ”The Human Flamingo” by Gesine Marwedel
who apart from being a gifted artist in mural and body
painting as well in mehndi, the superb henna decorations,
is a rehab educator and a speech therapist who came
to graduate from the University of Dortmund in Germany.
During her studies Gesine spent several months in India
working with disabled and autistic children and backpacked
throughout the country sharpening up her artistry.
Her body works make me speechless, she's able to expand
the view of fellow Italian artist Guido Daniele who's mostly
known for painting hands and wrists (he also came to live
and work in India) to a larger scale creating beautiful
optical illusions by transforming models into 
landscapes and enchanting creatures.
