About me
Emily Svec has been turning the human form into a body of art for the past six years.  Based in Des Moines, IA, she and her Body by Svec Crew including Karissa Andrews from If Looks Could Kill Make-up, have taken this particular brand of body painting throughout the Midwest, including Chicago, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis.  Svec's work has been published in Juice Magazine, Alt Magazine, Core Magazine, 515 Magazine and Urban Plains Mag.  She's been featured on KCCI Channel 8: In the Artist's Studio and also Sports Soundoff. Creating photo shoot concepts, performance art and event promotion models based in body painting, Svec takes her art to a top level using hair, make-up, costume and performance design.  Svec's art can never be defined as just body painting, it's an experience.

"Every curl, every streak, seems alert to the body and its pleasures, yet the imaginations always shaped by some refining drama, some controlling intelligence. To attend an event that features Body by Svec is to surrender to a midsummer nights dream; your wit can never match that of the Fairy Queen."
-John Domini, critic for New York Times and elsewhere, author of A TOMB ON THE PERIPHERY and other books.

Emily Svec:
The human form has captured me more than a canvas ever could.  There's something about the conversation that is had, the paint drying on the skin and the finished product that ends up stunning me again and again.  Using paint as a tool to turn someone into something they are not normally, I hope the images portrayed are some kind of exotic, whether the photo turns out funny, beautiful, or just strange.  Paint is a revolution, the skin on skin, the body as a form of art.
