The Australian Body Art Festival is Australia’s premier body art event, attracting artists and spectators from across Australia and overseas. Inspiring artworks, street performers, market stalls and lots of fun all weekend!
For the first time the event is being held in Cooroy on Saturday 8 April and Sunday 9 April. The 2017 theme is “Wonderland” which lends itself to a wide range of interpretations for artists.
This event is a ‘A Festival of Colour’ centred on competitions in full body painting (temporary art – not tattoo) with competitions in the categories of brush and sponge, airbrush, special effects and face painting. The event also showcases competitions and exhibitions in wearable art and photography. For members of the public, it will be nothing short of phenomenal to watch the human canvases take shape during the competitions.
