A Nearly Nude Vergara Models for Artist Domingo Zapata

There’s no denying Sofia Vergara’s curvaceous body could be described as a work of art… And, now it is an actual work of art.

The 40-year-old Colombian actress stripped down to her birthday suit to let noted artist Domingo Zapata paint on her.

“We met through friends and we started talking about doing something together and one day she said, ‘Let’s do it,’ explained the 37-year-old Spanish-American contemporary artist, who recently created a similar piece with Lindsay Lohan that sold for $100,000. “I said, ‘Okay, I don’t have a canvas, so I’m going to have to paint on you.’”

The idea of using her nearly nude body as a canvas didn’t scare the Modern Family starlet and she was ready to get the project started.

Domingo Zapata's Sofia Vergara Art PieceZapata decided to paint the words to a Spanish poem titled “Life is a Dream” on Vergara’s body.

“She is one of the most beautiful women in the world and very comfortable with her body,” said Zapata. “What a canvas!”

Zapata sold the 12-polaroid series of Vergara for $220,000.

The artist will next be working with another Latina bombshell, Eva Longoria.
