    World Body Paint Festival 2013I was absolutely thrilled to attend the 16th annual World Body Painting Festival this July 3-7th in Portschach, Austria. The festival takes place around a huge clean alpine lake with charming hotels and lot’s of greenery.

    During the WBF Academy portion of the week I took a fabulous intensive course with Bella Volen called ‘The Art of Body Painting’. She did an extensive slideshow of the history of body paint around the world and the agents of it’s resurgence in the 1950’s-80’s, as well as the current state of the field. After a live demonstration of her paint techniques, we were invited to choose a challenging image from a large selection and try to mimic it on skin.

    There was a fun party called the Body Circus on July 3rd at a nearby castle estate. There was fabulous shopping to be done as all the major European body art brands represented their products and some American companies as well. I added some great new products to my already huge toolkit.

    Human Décor Artists from 40 countries come to compete for the World Championship title in 3 Categories– Brush & Sponge, Airbrush, and Special Effects.

    We were able to watch the artists as they worked on their masterpieces in cute little tents all along the lake- and then see the results showcased on the main stage at night.

    I was able to get a lot of wonderful images. I have posted a gallery of over 150 images on the Become the Art Facebook Page.

    This is San Francisco’s largest fashion, music, and art event, and it is this Thursday April 25th, 7pm-12am at 1015 Folsom St. SF

    I will have an airbrush and face/body painting station set up, so stop by and get painted and get your  picture taken!

    This event is great because it features many independent local artists like myself, and showcases all types of art, such as visual art, film, fashion, music, hair & makeup, photography, models, and performing art.

    Come dress up in your cocktail attire, have a drink at the cash bar, and enjoy the show! Each event  features a film screening, musical performance, fashion show, art gallery, performance art, and a featured hairstylist and makeup artist.
    They have these events in many cities across the country as well as some in Australia.
