A Colourful World: The Art of Body Painting

1 episode x 60 mins

Bodypainting has been around for centuries; in ancient times it was used for hunting and ceremonial purposes. In fact, it still survives in this ancient form among most tribalist cultures in the Americas, Australia, the pacific Islands and some parts of Africa. In the West, the counterculture of the 1960s led to the revival of bodypainting as a form of art and this trend has been gaining momentum since. This film follows the footsteps of some of the leading international artists as they compete in the biggest art event in bodypainting - the ‘World Bodypainting Festival’. Be dazzled by the spectacular shows, the riot of colours and the highest form of Bodyart artistry – ‘a Colourful World’ is a flamboyant, one of a kind 3D Experience.
