World Bodypainting '08
The website of the World Bodypainting Festival 2008 in Seeboden, Austria, has finally posted its page of winners, which is well worth viewing (title link). There is terrific artwork in all categories. Watch out for Nick Wolfe's 2nd place in the Facepainting Category; his model wore coloured contact lenses to compliment the paint colours. Another New Zealand lizard crawled around the floor, the only showing of the Union Jack. No Brit. winners for 2008. This graphic is from sponsor Mist Stockholm, artist Kris Bülow, model Sindy Freund, photo Thomas Paul. Note: 1st World Bodypainting Festival® ASIA, World Cup Stadium, Daegu, South Korea, 25 to 31 August 2008 (CLICK). If the BBC covered this exciting event as it does the boring old Olympics, I'd be glued to the TV.
