Putin painted by boob

The latest in boob art. Russian artist Irina Romanovskaya says she's been painting portraits of Russian political leaders, including Vladimir Putin, using her boobs. She notes that "Paintings painted with breasts sell well and for a lot."

However, this isn't easy money. "Using your breasts to paint is more complicated, it's labor intensive and slow," she says. "Any mistake can mean you have to start all over again."

In the video below, she demonstrates the process, and it's not how I imagined it would be, being that it's surprisingly safe for work. Actually, I'm not really sure what she's doing in the video, because she's talking in Russian, but I assume she's demonstrating the process.

More info at Moscow Times and The Art Newspaper. Also check out Romanovskaya's blog for more examples of her work.

I call cheating! Unless the nipple is involved, this is "painting by minor clavicle roundness."

Why does Putin remind me of Alfred E. Newman?

Should I paint you one properly Paul? 😜 (kidding, I am about as artistic as..well as our average art post artists)
I do agree though, that is definitely cheating. What she needs is some tassel pasties to paint with.

I'm with you Paul. I was expecting her to be painting with her nips, but her website (though in Russian) show her with a palate and brush so I'm guessing it means she holds a brush with her cleavage. Not nearly as interesting as I imagined.

In high school I knew a girl who had poorly developed limbs and so she wrote and drew with a pen held in her mouth. She had excellent control and did amazing art.

Scratch that. I should have watched the video before commenting.
