Human Canvas #3

  • February 3, 2024

This is the final Human Canvas of the season!


Polar Bear Paint

  • February 24, 2024

A group of artists paint a group of nude models in an indoor studio. Then we march through the public streets of NYC in the buff for a quick, and freezing cold photo shoot. For the brave of heart. Location TBD.

Naked Theater

  • Spring 2024

Stay tuned for our 3rd production of Naked Theater! A troupe of talented actors, musicians and dancers will perform original, cutting edge work that challenges our idea of nudity and sexuality in America.


Human Canvas Collab

Due to popular demand for Human Canvas Painting, we decided to add another date!

Human Canvas Retreat

Our 1st retreat was a great success! Stay tuned for photos and more events to come at our Arts Space in upstate New York!

Human Canvas: Orbit

An amazing start to this years series of Human Canvas Paintings – more to come!

December Potluck

It was great for us all to get together and see our friends again!

Crete Bodypainting Day

Crete Bodypainting Day was a blast! Over 20 people traveled to Greece to make art together, enjoying the natural beauty and adding some of our own. With the hot sun on us, we were able to cool down with a quick dip into the ocean.

NYC Halloween Parade

Riding the HCA float at the 50th NYC Halloween Parade was amazing as always. This year, all of the paintings were black and white, making for a great group mosaic.

Painting Kamali

It was an honor to paint Kamali to celebrate life and the beauty of the human body. We also took advantage of the moment to raise awareness about ovarian cancer and the importance of early detection.

The 10th NYC Bodypainting Day Was Amazing!

NYC Bodypainting Day was epic! One of the very best in terms of great art, huge crowds and major press coverage. I’m sure you know that after 10 years we’ve retired the event. But not to worry, HCA will continue on with new, cutting edge, artistic, connecting events!


Is to bring people together in unity, acceptance and love through large-scale public art events around the world.
