Featuring hundreds of artists, most wearing nothing or just a layer of paint, the event transformed the small town into an explosion of colour and creativity.
Bodypainting, airbrushing and UV effect workshops were also on the menu. ‘Body Circus’, a side event featuring fantasy costumes, extreme makeup and fantasy fashion was held at Pörtschach’s castle Leonstain.
The event, in its 15th year, was attended by artists from more than 40 nations worldwide and saw Avatar-inspired outfits, jewelled headresses and lots and lots of bare flesh. 30,000 visitors attended the 15th World Bodypainting Festival in front of the Woerthersee lake in Poertschach.
200 artists from 44 countries showed off their creations in the hope of taking home a prestigious World Award, the equivalent of a world championship title.
