World Bodypainting Festival makes a splash

Billed as the most colourful event on the planet – nearly 30,000 people flocked to the 13th World Bodypainting Festival in Carinthia… South Austria.

Over seven days more than 200 artists from 40 nations battled with brushes to create human artworks based on the themes of Subculture – The Preliminary Days – to Sources of Power.

20 young international DJs got in on the act providing musical backing for the breathtaking choreographed displays.

American artist Brian Wolfe put the whole show in perspective.

He said: “I’m very interested in creating beings, you know like new worlds, new people, new things and new life, playing God.”
