The World body painting festival

Art in bodies

The body painting is an art that adopts the human body as a support.
This artistic expression exists since thousand years, since the men paint their body at the time of a combat, to dissuade the enemy or within a tribe.

And as always when the human body is in the center of the creations, the results are true art works, mixing surrealism and the dream with the realism of the naked bodies under painting and the transitory aspect of work.

The beauty of the human being as an artistic support is emphasized, whereas the shapes of the body inspire unexpected feelings to the artist and admirers.
