Below is some basic information about the event.
Feel free to email us if you have any questions.
We are looking for talented and dedicated artists with a voice. Various styles are great, the more diverse, the better.
We love body painters, but we also want to share this interactive art with artists of all genres.
For the Love of Expression
Bodypainting Day is about expression. It's great to paint a beautiful painting, but we encourage artists to share something of themselves in their art. This years theme is Humanity. As always, the theme is intentionally vague to allow for a wide variety of interpretations. Check out this year's color palette.
Are every day people, big and small, male and female, old and young (18+).
Artists and models are matched up on the day of the event. This encourages artists to feed off the moment for artistic inspiration. Artists need to bring their own brushes. Models need to bring a small towel to stand on/sit on. Models should wear comfortable shoes and long hair should be pulled back during the painting process.
A Few Rules
All models are full nude. No costumes, headdresses, props, etc. It’s just the body and the painting.
