Boob Painter Marcey Hawk: Artist Uses Breasts To Paint Artwork for Celebrity Clients, Including Hugh Hefner and Russell Brand
Have you ever heard of a boob painter? Meet Marcey Hawk. The Californian artist experiments with different methods using her breasts to create her artwork.
Hawk first covers her breasts in a mixture of colors, and then presses them against her canvases, angling in different directions to create her eye-catching masterpieces. She mentions that she has five distinct, unique methods she uses: the whole breast print, nipple print, the "just the tip" method, the "squish and swirl," and her newest-method, "titty twerk."
"The squish and swirl method is the one I used the most. It involves using both breasts, squishing and then swirling the paint on to the canvas," says the artist. "My newest style is the titty twerk, where the canvas is primed in a solid color."
"While it's still wet, I used just about a quarter of my breast covered in paint and sort of jiggle it around," she continues.
"I began painting with my boobs after seeing a performance artist drip paint over her naked body and roll around on a large canvas sheet," she adds. "For her, the art was about public display, however I was intrigued by some of the marks left behind by her painted body. Her performance led me to my experimentation and my artistic niche was born."
Hawk also explains her artistic intention, and reveals her great influence in art.
"My art is meant to be intimate, erotic, explorative and unique with a hint of whimsy. I call it chaotic yet contained abstraction," she says. "My biggest influences are Jackson Pollock and Vincent Van Gogh."
Since her first painting back in 2006, Marcey Hawk has made thousands of pieces, which she has sold up to $500 each from her online shop under nickname Boobie Painter. She also donates a share of all sales to the Susan G. Komen breast cancer fund. Her work has been bought by celebrity clients.
"My paintings have been shipped all over the world," she says. "Some of the more well-known owners of my work include Hugh Hefner and Russell Brand."
