Nearly-naked Yet Covered; The Daegu International Body Painting Festival draws a rush of body painters to transform models.
Naked? Don’t think too much! Read. Delicate brush strokes gently covered the bare skin of dozens of models who were turned into a living canvass at the Daegu International Body Painting Festival in South Korea. Artists from all over the world participated to give a dazzling look to the models who were transformed into walking pieces of art.
The artists from across the globe participated and were judged on the basis of their painting techniques, use of colour and design originality.
Strokes of brush painted the living canvas for six hours.
When clothes were almost dropped and colours covered the body to still give a clothed feeling.
Flamboyant body designs displayed by the models who wore nothing except the briefs and pieces of duct tape, walked in exotic headgears and stilettos.
Body art is not an easy feat. This model was painted by Japanese artist Iwasaki Masakazu. It took more than six hours to transform her.
The use of art skills made the models look startlingly different.
