Artists from around the world recently gathered to take part in the World Body-Painting Festival, in which they turned their bodies into creative canvases. The festival also included fashion shows, music events, and lifestyle markets.
The small town of Klagenfurt, Austria has been hosting the festival for the past 20 years. This year’s festival attracted more than 30,000 spectators. The main events are open to the general public … in a park known as “Bodypaint City.”
Artists compete in categories such as brush and sponge, airbrush, and special effects.
