“Life imitates Art far more often than Art imitates Life.” These immortal words, attributed as one of many well-known quotes to Oscar Wilde, might just be under threat from artist Orly Faya. Faya appears to be using art to imitate life – and specifically, the natural world – so thoroughly that she actually paints living models into her pictures.

Since 2012, the Australian body artist has been travelling all over the world and merging the lines between humanity and Mother Earth with her incredible portrait/landscapes. Using the planet as her inspiration and the naked human body as her canvas, Faya creates mesmerising pictures in which it’s often genuinely tricky to discern where people end and the Earth begins.

“What I’ve come to realise isn’t anything new. It’s very obvious but it’s often overlooked,” she explains. “It’s quite simply that we all come from the Earth. And we all go back to the Earth when we die. And today it feels important to acknowledge that our survival depends on our ability to recognise ourselves and the planet as one living, breathing biosphere.”
