Russian artist Viktoria has developed a new technique to painting that could theoretically titillate those who criticize her country's contemporary arts scene as stagnant: she is opting to use her breasts in lieu of brushes in her latest work.
Based in St. Petersburg, Viktoria says her method -- which involves dipping her breasts into oil and watercolor paints before pressing them to the canvas -- came to her in a dream about a year ago. Her approach, which results in a distinctive spherical design resembling flowers, has drawn praise from local art experts.
Still, she says, "it's more difficult than painting with your hands. You have to be careful you don't wipe off or damage what you've already done."
