Human Canvas ‘Adaptation’

Some doors open. Other doors close. I had another artist start off the painting with color. More collaborative Human Canvas to come!

Human Canvas ‘Letting Go’

The only thing that is constant is change. I posed in this Human Canvas. Can you find me?

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!
