There was a body painting competition on last night that I would have liked to go and see but didn’t get there. Bodypainting is an interesting proposition for me. Perusing online galleries you see bodypainting competitions at nudist resorts which are pretty amateur but a lot of fun and very quick.
Other people, like Anthony Larrisey of Urban Flesh, have made it a serious career option and artform, creating incredibly intricate pieces that very from the expected. The piece above are pretty representative of what people usually think of when they hear bodypainting. It’s clever and it’s well done but it’s fairly typical. Having said that, I seriously don’t think I could do it, but I certainly wouldn’t mind spending hours paying attention to this guy’s butt.
