The Australian Body Art Festival launched their 2018 theme of Wild Things on Saturday with a taste of the art to be showcased from body painting artists, Diana Ormston and Carleen Adorn creating two living artworks.
“It’s funny how people interpret the theme,” she said.
“I immediately thought of the book (Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak) but some people think of wildlife, others of a wild thing like a hornet and others think of acting wildly.”
A member of the Queensland Body Artists Society, Diana spent about four hours completing her wild things painting on model Talia Rose. The professional artist said the work was in demand for events and corporate occasions and Talia said she loved the way body art modelling had enabled her to “meet cool people and go to cool places.“
The 2018 event will take place in Cooroy on the weekend of 7 and 8 April, attracting artists and spectators from across Australia and overseas.
The free event is centred on competitions in temporary body painting in categories of brush and sponge, airbrush, special effects and face painting.
The event also showcases competitions and exhibitions in photography and wearable art which is fashion made from recycled materials.
This week the home-grown festival gained a financial boost with the State Government injecting $10,000 into it under the Tourism and Events Queensland’s Queensland Destination Events Program.
