Brand's new flame revealed as Mexican painter who sells nude art online

February 19, 2012 - London

Russell Brand's new girl has been unveiled as Mexican painter Oriela Medellin Amieiro, whom he met in a yoga class.

The 25-year-old beauty was seen slipping back into her apartment after staying overnight at the comedian's pad earlier this week.

When asked whether she and Brand were officially an item, she replied coyly saying, "I am not comfortable talking about this."

Amieiro's portfolio features nude paintings which she presents online to a backdrop of sexually-charged music, the Sun reported.

Her creations sell for up to 4,500 pounds each.

She says on her website: "My work explores feelings of guilt, sensuality, sexuality and repression from a woman's perspective.

"In an era where gender roles and identities are blurred, my works express contradictions.

"They portray strong and powerful females and their inner turmoil, as well as gentle and sensitive males."

In one online video she appears in a short, figure-hugging dress and smiles mischievously at the camera.

In another, she delivers an angry poem called 'Self Hatred'.

Her apartment is only a short hop from Brand's Hollywood Hills pad.
