World bodypainting festival transforms people into dazzling creations

June 25, 2018—The World Bodypainting Festival, a tradition for over 20 years in southern Austria's state of Carinthia, now features painters from more than 50 countries. They compete in categories that include brush and sponge, airbrushing, and special effects make-up. Festival founder Alex Barendregt describes body painting as "an art form that is also moving and screaming and dancing.” Body painting artist Cheryl Ann Lipstreu says, “It speaks to me because your canvas has a heartbeat."
