Men Dragon Alien sirens, fabulous fire dancers, in hair Santas and even a labrador retriever vehicle color, you can see all these festivals and more exceptional body painting now annually worldwide.
There is a wide range of body painting festivals today. All are equipped with painted bodies, of course, and they include all types of competitions, but there are a range of skills and size between the different festivals and some others are “family friendly” than others.
Here’s a quick look at the first six festivals of painting the body, when they occur and what you can expect to find:
1. The World Council of Painting Festival
The festival includes some of the body painting professional as surprising to see in the world today. A 3-day program includes dance, music and fireworks and many contests. Lots of body painting here should fall into the category “art” with some body paint dancers simply defies belief. A great event and well worth a visit.
Where: Seeboden, Austria
Duration: Three days
Events include: the World Championship in three categories: competition night for the effects of UV rays, the prices of special effects, classes and workshops, competition BodyCircus (masquerade), live music and dance, photography International and a giant fireworks show.
Line art: One of the best, with an amazing variety of styles and themes surprising.
Family: It is not clear, but it is in Europe, this is not likely to ban children under 18, however, this festival of body painting is not to advertise themselves as child friendly as some others.
2. The Festival of the body of Canadian painting
This is another festival of body painting artists simply magnificent and completed the work. The quality of art is similar to that seen in the World Body Painting Festival. The Festival is the theme from year to year, the latest issue of which “It’s a jungle out there.”Also includes Canadian Painting Council Championship.
Where: Columbia Nanaimo, British
Duration: two days
Activities include: Painting Competition overall body, a brush and a sponge and airbrush body painting include Championships
artistic range: more surprising, and one of the best together. Very life and fantastic double-take images.
Family Friendliness: Not stated – would be worth making a first call.
3. The international festival of body painting
This festival was held in Mainz, the city more than two thousand years of history. It is located on the river Rhine, has a strong Celtic roots and may have been founded by the Romans in 13 BC. One can imagine that the painting of the body has a long history here, if you remember the Celtic tradition of painting their bodies before battle. Again, the artistic abilities and the area is beautiful in this Festival.
Where: Mainz, Germany
Duration: Festival Weekend
Events include: Contests are special effects, and face painting
Artistic Range: very gorgeous, high artistic skills.
the family is not known, but again, it is in Europe. I would call ahead.
4. Wales International Body Painting Festival
This festival is a bit ‘younger, less established than the top 3, although it has some beautiful works of art to see that they are just the beginning. In addition, the atmosphere is “fun” orinted less “high” art and family participation is strongly encouraged. A big party to consider if you want to do a family trip and see some extraordinary work in progress.
Location: Wales (of course)
Duration: two days
Events include: Hands on demonstrations, terror experts and specialists of flowers
Artistic Range: much smaller and impressive event, and not so subtle, or other creative
Family Friendliness: Very good, in fact, they encourage families and camping, with an “all ages” atmosphere and events designed for young participants
5. The UK Council Painting Festival
This festival showcases some of the less impressive – but funniest – body painting, although it must be said that we did not block the “high art” thing, but more of a circus or a type County Fair outing for the whole family. Fun, casual atmosphere and non-selfconscious allows for some amazing art and purely “fun” of the body to be seen. If you are not a super model and I’d like to get your body painting without worrying about the contemptuous comment, it might be a good option for you.
Location: United Ashford, United
Duration: two days
Events include face painting family character, body painting contest for amateur and professional categories, craft fair, children’s activities, workshops, and “bouncy castle. A.
Artistic Range: fair, plus a family outing is a lot of things to do than make a wonderful art.
Family Friendliness: Very High, announced as the event for the family. lower cost of body painting all the parts – a movie ticket.
6. The U.S. Bodypainting Festival (Or Painting Festival of New Mexico / Bodypainting Competition Council U.S.)
There are certainly some impressive body painting festival and considered this a lot of creative innovations in hair and unusual designs that you will not see anywhere else. An example of the mind is a model dressed in a racing theme of hair spray in red, white and blue behind him, as if flying in the wind. Also, if you’re an American festival of course do not require a ticket. This is not a family outing because it explicitly prohibits children under the age of 18 years.
Where: Alberquerque, New Mexico
Duration: Three days
Events include: demonstrations, workshops, contests, body painting
Art Space: High to Low – it is a mixture of impressive artistic works and make things better unpainted here, if not all the “interesting”.
Childcare: Not at all. We are the United States and nobody can remember less than 18 is allowed.
So my short list of first 6 body painting festivals in the world. Would you take a vacation this year that it is not your usual hum-drum ‘ride? Choose one of these festivals and you can travel light (you know you can just take a pot of paint and a brush for the evening)!
