Skin City

July 10th, 2014

Every year the madness and spectacle of the World Bodypainting Festival descends on the quaint town of Pörtschach, for a long weekend of bodypainting and artistry, music and dancing. Bright, bold and beautiful, we were again glued to the action, in awe of the pop-art themed masterpieces crafted on human skin. Scott Fray and Madelyn Greco made bodyart history with their wins in Facepainting and UV, making them the only artists to have been World Champion in all five categories over the years.

Warpaint have rounded up some of our favourite looks, as well as the winners of the main categories. Did you attend the festival this year? Let us know in the comments below!
