Michigan artist James Kuhn is clearly more comfortable with face paint on than off. Kuhn describes himself as “an artist, retired drag queen, whiteface clown, former nudist, born again Christian, average 46 year old guy…well maybe not exactly average!” All joking aside, his painting is incredible, like nothing we’ve ever seen. His truly imaginative creations really push the boundaries of face painting. Kuhn describes his philosophy: “Art should never be a product. It should be a gift of love and a prayer. Art is silly, and fun, and can be powerful and sacred. I do show in galleries, but selling should never be your motivation for creating art.” Silly and fun, indeed. This guy must be a blast on Halloween! Check out some of his creations brought to life here.
