Scars as Art Tell True Stories of Change and Transformation

Artist Ted Meyer's "Scar Art" Shared on Website

There's a story behind every scar
and Ted Meyer has transformed
his own scars and the scars of
others into compelling works of art.

The 35 mono-prints, taken directly
from the skin of his models, are
portraits of the "scar stories"that have
changed people's lives.
Los Angeles based artist Ted Meyer’s
work is also a reflection of his own
experiences as a surgical patient.

He has generously shared
his work in his accessible catalogue available for viewing
at his website. Check it out. I thought you might be interested in a virtual tour.
