The New York-based artist last visited Australia in 2010, photographing thousands of naked people on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, but this time he plans to use Chapel Street as his canvas over two days in July.

Tunick says he is looking forward to working with Melburnians again, noting a mass nude photo shoot he did on the city's Princes Bridge on a wet day in 2001.

"Almost 5000 people coming in the rain to want to be part of an artwork is phenomenal," he said in a video, released on Monday.

"People from Melbourne are a little braver because of their willingness to pose no matter the weather. I get a sense of resilience and risk-taking."

Tunick called on models over the age of 18 and of "any shape, any size, any nationality, any ethnicity" to participate.
