Bold Beauty Project in Miami, 2016 / Portrait by: Starr Sariego
My name is Cynthia Fleischmann and I am a Swiss/American activist artist living in Zurich, Switzerland. The projects I am most known for are called 'Bodypaintography' and 'Harmony Strand' where I promote unity & action for humanity and harmony in various artistic ways. I lost my leg in 2015 after being hit by a car on the highway and consider myself and my friend Cathy who I was riding with super lucky to be alive! I was given a second chance at life and I am doing my best to stay positive, live responsibly and create positive change through my lifestyle and art.
Alongside bodypaintography, I write poetry, paint paintings & murals, organize art happenings such as 'Ashes to Ashes; Dust to Dust' and ‘Human Harmony Strand’ at Burning Man events and am creating Harmony Strand Drone Light Shows calling out for Peace and Climate Action for a more Harmonious World.
I am also passionate about Aerial Gondolas as public transportation and created the Miami Aerial Gondola Public Transportation Project to help improve the City of Miami in Florida which was sadly denied. I still believe aerial gondolas are urgently needed in Miami and in growing cities around the world.
