Like Neo-Dadaist Ushio Shinohara knocks out canvases with ink-soaked boxing
gloves, Erin Barylski creates larger-than-life artwork using only her body.

Under the Splits Art nom de plume, Erin Barylski has enthusiastically performed at major events around town including Miami Swim
Week, Art Basel Miami Beach and Yelp’s recent 10th Anniversary celebration. The tools of her trade range from her elbows to her toes,
which she uses to create lasting impressions with children’s tempera paint and improvised dance techniques. The end result is a visually
stunning piece of live art exerting more vigor than the music bumping at 160 beats per minute in the background. In the near future, she
hopes to present at MoMA in New York City and appear on SNL; SplitsArt.com.
