The artist currently known as James Franco has found a new canvas in which to paint upon: his own body!
The man with more job titles than we have room to list is working with Dazed & Confused magazine on a special short film project that sounds like it might be James’ most avant-garde piece yet!
Described as a surreal, self-directed art film about a masked couple who invade a gallery and run riot with a ton of paint, Franco showed off his colorful costuming from his movie on the mag’s December cover!
OK. We think we like what we see? But we’re still not sure. It’s kind of like… a really sad, hipster clown caught in the rain.
James is one of many artists who are collaborating with Dazed & Confused for their new Video Visionaries film series.
We dig how out there James allows himself to be every once in awhile. In order to create, one must explore! So explore away, Franco!
And feel free to explore some more shots of James covered in paint (below)!
