“She is a contemporary performance and installation artist, who is best known for her unusual work in which she uses her own body as a canvas for body paint.  Her last name, Paredes, which means walls in Spanish, perfectly suits her fascination with turning herself into a human chameleon and melting herself into the walls.”
