KOREAN COLOR DAYS October 2013

 

My third adventure in South-Korea

My third adventure in South-Korea. This time I had the honour of performing live at the Samsung Blue Square in Seoul. I was invited by the KMAA Korean Makeup Artist Association. The show was sponsored by Kryolan. The models were branded for WBA World Bodypainting Association, KMAA and Kryolan.

This was the first time I put up the showmusic myself and I also decided to paint the background during the show. The theme was "Halloween" so it all happened within the fitting color range from black to orange. :)

It was KMAA's 12th International Makeup Artfair and there was a big Bodypainting contest and some nice gigs on stage.

While all this was happening inside Blue Square, KMAA had a Bodypainting Exhibition set up on the rooftop of the building. All the big names of the Bodypainting scene were displayed...Johannes Stötter, Birgit Mörtl, Bella Volen, Craig Tracy, Filippo Ioco, Einat Dan, Scott Fray, Michael Rosner, Riina Laine, myself too :)  and also some asian Bodypainting artists.

The next day  I painted a model for a small seminar I held for the visitors of the Makeup Artfair. To close the event all the participants joined the Halloween parade walking through Seoul. Great fun. :)

The next stop was Suwon, near Seoul for some intensive Bodypainting seminars and workshops.
I started off with some interpretative illustrations, followed by stencil cutting and applications to the body.
