Pakistani actress Veena Malik has allowed her body to be used as a canvas for an artistic collaboration between herself and Finland's best-known visual artist Vesa Kivinen, in London.

Kivinen has created five artworks, in which a rich palette of colours is painted directly onto Malik's body, the Daily Times reported.

He created symbolic landscapes where the resulting forms and textures are a clear departure from both the organic lines and the envisioned sketch.

The five unique pieces of art are described as the dialogue between three-dimensional physiology and gesture coupled with the aesthetics of two-dimensional paintings that coalesce into a singular object of art.

It explores themes from ancient and religious traditions to our contemporary global melting pot with its ever evolving and emerging cross-cultural associations.

Meanwhile, Malik told the publication that she feels glad to work with Kivinen.
