Zapata, whose modern style has made him a success both in the United States and internationally, used multi-colored paint to draw the words to a Spanish poem on Vergara’s body and proceeded to photograph her for a 12 photo series.
Vergara, who made headlines last month when she tweeted a photo of her much-talked about wardrobe malfunction during the Emmy Awards, posed for the photos in a black thong and bralette set.
“Working with her was an explosion of love and passion…that’s how art is and should be created!,” Zapata told NBC Latino.
Zapata, who photographed Vergara in June at her home, sold the jaw-dropping series for $220,000. According to PEOPLE magazine, Zapata will next be working with Eva Longoria.
