Barking Mad?

23 year old Dutch artist Levi van Veluw turns his head into works of art. His creations include turning his skull into a forrest using tree barks, pebbles, carpet, hair and yoghurt.

When asked why he uses his body rather than canvas he said it's because it's 'always available' and a 'very direct way' to express his ideas.

Some of his self portraits take 11 hours to complete but his work has paid off, earning him international recognition and many awards including Photographer of the Year at the IPA International Photo Awards in America.
