I was able to attend and photograph a competition for a body painting competition hosted by Living Art America this past weekend. Bodies as a Work of Art was created in 2010 by artist Paul Chelko and is the annual fund raiser for The Chelko Foundation. World Bodypainting Association is and internationally recognized competition including categories for both emerging and professional artist.
Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands were the event’s performers. They have a wonderful Cabaret sound and I highly recommend their self titled album Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands & Muses and Bones.
The artist’s work is amazing! It’s amazing someone can morph a body into a canvas for such incredible paintings. I hope you enjoy this sample as much as I enjoyed the event. You can view more images here: Gallery Link. View more about the Atlanta event here: 2013 Event.
