You as Living Art




Become a living work of art immortalized in limited edition art photographs featuring you body-painted with a unique, detailed painting, tailored to accentuate and enhance your body.


Well known for his painted nymphe series, Monty Knowles creates detailed body-paintings then carefully photographs them in unique locations to produce high resolution photographs suitable for extremely large prints.


His body paintings enhance and celebrate bodies; minimizing or eliminating surface features like cellulite, wrinkles and skin discolorations.  


All paintings are done with a paint brush. There are no stencils or airbrushing. Clients lie down for the most part during the painting and have a relaxing spa experience with music and meditation, or invite friends for a paint party.

Miscellaneous Notes and Conditions:



The artist/photographer retains the copyright for all images. However no images will be displayed or used in any way by the artist/photographer without prior approval in writing from the client.


The client may display the photographs for any personal application including social media. 


Commercial use of the photographs is not permitted without written approval from the artist/photographer.

Who will see and have access to my paintings/photographs?


Only the artist/photographer, you, and the people you designate will have access to the photographs. You may send or show them to whomever you like. At the end of the session, you will be given a private password to access, download, or print your photographs.


No photographs will be used by the artist/photographer without your written permission


Can I bring a friend or family member?




Do I have to be nude under the paint?


No. Most clients are wearing at least the equivalent of a strapless g-string, but you are free to wear as much or as little as you like. Your paint scheme will simply work around the amount of clothing you have.
