This alternative art of using the human canvas is indeed spellbound!|
I conceptualise how the art is positioned to suit the needs of an individual or achieving corporate objectives.
Somehow, unlike 'conventional' painting, body-paint lo and behold is a quick metamorphosis of an idea and translates onto a human canvas and voila, the creation is realised in matter of hours.. while most form of painting takes days, weeks, months and even years.
In short, gratification of beauty to be appreciated and immortalised on camera that will send both the audience and media into a frenzy.
It is simply NOT a quick fix though.
It takes talent, skill and dexterity to realise the imagery.
It is a team effort. Be it from the artist or the model. As much the artist is occupied on his creative juice, credit must go to the model for the patience, concentration, dedication and most of the time... standing for hours for the work to be realised.
Body-painting is not a mere interpretation of creative idea. The model is the conduit where he morphs and deliver the creativity realised by the artist. Only talent with body & movement will able to convey not a mere stoic model.
