This is the first bodypainting I did Friday July 4th for the preselection to the Finals. I made 14th place on this one. The theme was Pop Art.
I decided to make my own Pop Art in using existing Art Works from Michelangelo and giving them a new meaning. My design was about "Censorship of Art" a very popular theme at the moment in the Bodypainting scene, as Facebook is blocking many bodypainting artworks for nudity/porn!! But we are doing Art not Porn... Well, what if Michelangelo would have been censored? That's what I wanted to express with my creation!
Sunday July 6th we made this creation at the Finals. The theme was Artificial Intelligence - A.I..
This design was about the hidden threat (skull on the chest) of A.I. (girl on the skull) and an army of artificial minds collecting and controlling our informations in the future which involves the end of humanity.
