Stunning Psychedelic Patterns Created With Nude Figures

Look closely– these kaleidoscopic patterns are made up of tiny nude bodies, intricately twirling in a black space.

That's right. These incredibly involved illustrations were created by photographing and duplicating dozens of nude figures, all painted various colours as if they were paint strokes on a canvas.

This psychedelic art is the work of multimedia artist Cecelia Weber.

What began as a simple self-portrait blossomed into an entire body art series when she noticed that her figure looked like a petal in the photo. Could she duplicated the form digitally and build a flower? The series evolved organically from there.

Once a man actually looked for five minutes really close up at them before jumping in shock.

Weber's favorite part of showing her work is watching people try to figure out how she made the work.

"Once a man actually looked for five minutes really close up at them before jumping in shock," she recalls.

As for her process, Weber explains that these pieces take many stages to complete:

"I start by researching photos of the creature or plant I'm trying to create and then sketch poses I want to photograph in a notebook… I never warp my models or edit them to change them – it is important to me to portray real natural bodies," she says.

"Once I have my photos I start laying out my piece and playing with color and arrangements… Many drastic transformations take place during this stage, so it's sort of magical, because so many different variations are possible. I feel many possibilities at once but the true form of my subject slowly emerges."
