The naked body has always inspired artists. Today, people continue to admire nudity, which remains one of the main themes of creativity.

Find out which celebrities have decorated their bodies with artistic photos, videos and paintings from our selection.
(Watch out! There is nude material!)
The fascination with the naked body has existed since antiquity. Over the centuries, the ideals of the figure changed, but the theme of nudity remained one of the main themes in art. It does not lose its relevance today.
Actors and actresses, singers and singers strive to express their involvement in art and often pose nude for various art objects. Here are the stars who have decorated works of art with their bodies in the literal sense of the word.
Recently, the 47-year-old supermodel stripped down for creative videos in the name of charity. The art project consists of three parts, which are called "Sleep With Kate", "Walk With Kate" and "Drive With Kate". In the first video, Kate Moss is basking in bed, revealing her naked body. Fans are already ready to buy an art video at an online auction for $ 11,000 (about 810,000 rubles), and the price continues to rise. The creators of the triptych say that its main theme is to connect the intimate with the public.
The singer turned her body into a painting for the video for "God Is A Woman" in 2018. The nude beauty is painted with white, purple and pink colors. The candid image was created by the American artist Alexa Meade (Alexa Meade) — a master of body art installations.
However, this idea came to Ariana herself. The artist thought through the details of the image to the smallest detail. Alexa admired the taste and creativity of the singer, working with her.
The buxom rapper, despite being overweight, is often photographed naked and performs in revealing costumes. On the cover of the album "Cuz I Love You", which was released in 2019, Lizzo is depicted completely naked and wearing a luxurious wig.
The hair stylist Kendall Dorsey, who created the wig, worked on the image of the singer. The hairdresser told why the star decided to appear on the album cover without clothes. The main idea is to reveal yourself as a woman and demonstrate fearlessness, freedom and confidence in your own irresistibility.
The legendary singer expresses her love for art through fashion. She impresses with sophisticated outfits, but in 2017 shocked fans by appearing on the cover of Vogue magazine naked. In an art photo, a well-chosen pose hides the intimate parts of the star's body.
The editors of the fashion magazine explained the idea: Celine Dion is captured in the image, when she seems to change outfits between performances in Las Vegas.
The queen of glamour often pleases subscribers in social networks with hot shots, but the most iconic nude photo was the one that appeared on the cover of Paper magazine. The photo shoot was conducted by the iconic photographer Jean-Paul Goude.
Kim poses from the back, playfully lowering the garment below the buttocks. On the spread of the publication there is a picture of a completely naked beauty. It is noteworthy that she decided to participate in the photo shoot immediately after the birth of her first daughter North West. The star says that in this way she wanted to leave memories of her body during that period.
Lindsay has always been a big fan of Marilyn Monroe. In 2008, New York magazine published a series of pictures of the actress, in which she recreates the image of the legendary blonde from the photo shoot "The Last Sitting" in 1962. Gorgeous shots were made by the author of the original project with Marilyn Monroe – the cult photographer Bert Stern (Bert Stern).
In 2011, the star appeared on the cover of Playboy, imitating a nude photo of Monroe in 1949. Three years later, when Lindsay Lohan was living in London, she met a local street artist under the pseudonym Pegasus. The actress asked him to draw a picture from a Playboy spread and hung the picture in her dressing room.
The actor who played James Bond, conquered women with beauty and charm all his life. In 2011, a nude portrait of Sean Connery, painted in 1951, was discovered. It was in the collection of the artist Rab Webster.
Rab was studying at the Edinburgh College of Art when he painted the future James Bond. At that time, young Connery was working as a model. Another local artist, Richard Demarco, also drew the actor in class. He remembers how all the girls were crazy about the handsome man and his flawless body.
Body art is an amazing art that can not only reveal the beauty of the human body, but also make it part of a masterpiece. The Dallas-based artist paints people into picturesque landscapes with a brush and a camera.
