As a part of Amnesty International’s global campaign “My Body My Rights” Hikaru Cho painted models with an extraordinary precision and detail. “People always bear prejudice and a sense of discrimination somewhere inside” says Cho, who, although born in Japan and raised speaking Japanese, holds Chinese nationality. “Often, we don’t even notice it. I have experienced it many times while living in Japan. People differentiate their own ethnic group from others in order to strengthen their solidarity”. (Photo by Jim Marks/PA Wire)


An Internet sensation, 20-year-old Cho’s work very often relates to the complex issues of prejudice, self esteem as well as the unease of being different from those around us. She paints eerily lifelike eyes, mouths, zippers and electronic outlets on unexpected parts of people’s anatomy. (Photo by Jim Marks/PA Wire)

Hikaru Cho’s special effects make-up has a repertoire that ranges from designing mobile apps to creating movie masks and printed pantyhose and is about more than just shock. For Cho, giving her sitters just the eyes or lips they have always wanted is a way to point out the assumptions and presumptions they carry beneath their skin. It also helps her to convey the alienation she herself feels living in near-homogenous Japan. (Photo by Jim Marks/PA Wire)


Hikaru Cho’s 3D body paintings have been extremely popular recently. With acrylic paints, Cho uses the human body as her canvas; painting zippers, plugs, sockets, laces and buttons directly onto our skin as if they were a garment. (Photo by Jim Marks/PA Wire)
