BASE Orlando: Beach Bash Body Paint Art Show Reggae

The BASE Orlando: Beach Bash Body Paint Art Show was held at DRIP (8747 International Drive Orlando FL). The black walls were great for allowing the painted model's colors to shine.  After all the models were painted, there was a runway show of the creations. There was a jellyfish wig and plenty of aquatic themes. One woman had beach umbrellas painted on each butt cheek and a shark swam its way up another leg. Clam shells cupped breasts and along with octopi and starfish. Seaweed and scales adorned skin in faux patterns.

The runway show was too much of a challenge since each creation was on stage for less than a minute. I focused my attention on the reggae band instead. They played a lively set which did blend well with the beach theme. Body painting is such an ephemeral art form existing for just one night. All that remains after the evening's festivities are the photos, videos and a few sketches.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at analogartistdigitalworld@gmail.com
