James Kuhn - Famous People - Face Paint in Motion
A Face Paint Artist Portrays Famous People
If you haven't seen a James Kuhn video, you are missing an unusual performance artist. Using theatrical paint on his face and sometimes his head and torso, he creates well-known figures. By moving his body and features, he creates what he calls Face-Paint-in-Motion or Face Paint Puppetry.
It's offbeat, to say the least. Some might even call James Kuhn's performances "bizarre." Here I've collected some of his face painting performances where he portrays famous people, but he also transforms his face into inanimate objects, historical events and other things. Watch the videos, then I've teamed up three of them for you to vote for which one you like the best.
