Get naked, get drawn
In 2011, artists Mike Perry and Josh Cochran introduced “Get Nude Get Drawn,” an interactive art experiment that celebrates “the nude” by using social media for non-professional models to pose naked for a two-day marathon session session.
During the Other Art Fair, each model will pose for a 30-minute drawing session with 8 notable artists, including Perry and Cochran, who will create as many portraits as possible during that time. The models will then be presented with one of their portraits and the rest will be sold at the fair.
“Get Nude, Get Drawn” has been shown at exhibitions in New York and London and gathered a talented list of participating artists and over 200 models who have participated in the project to date.
