FORENSIC ART OVERVIEW

"Forensic art is the artistic technique used in the identification, apprehension or conviction of a wanted person. This person may not necessarily be a criminal, but could be a missing person or an unidentified deceased person. These forensic images can be admissible in a court of law.​" 

- Basic Definitions, Forensic Art Scope, International Association of Identification

The successful application of scientific and artistic techniques a forensic artist implements relies on a comprehensive anatomical knowledge of the human body and an astute ability to work in medicolegal contexts. Excellent use of accredited methodological standards and ethical practice are key for all types of
