BodyPainting Day will return to New York City on July 22, 2017, from 12 pm to 4 pm at Washington Square Park in the historical Greenwich Village area.

This will be the first of four international BodyPainting Day events occurring in 2017.

Regardless of body type, age or gender, this event shows the public that anyone can be transformed into a beautiful work of art by a body painting artist.

According to body painting artist Andy Golub, who organized the first Bodypainting Day in New York City in 2014, the public is encouraged to come and observe as body painting artists transform models into unique works of art all within public view.

He also points out that most people may not realize it, but there are a lots of costs involved in running a free public event.

Insurance, travel, rental fees, tents, supplies, signage, security, event staff, website, social media are just some of the costs necessary to run these events, so he encourages the public and art loves to help support BodyPainting Day through their Kickstarter campaign.

Body painted models are camouflage among the trees on Broadway during the initial BodyPainting Day in New York City. Can you see the head of each of the two models?

Last years, Bodypaining Day showcased some truly amazing transformations through the art of body paining.

International artist Robin Slonina performed a transformed on beautiful model Bethani Gruber by turning her into a stunning winged creature.

Slonina has provided us with some insight into her body painting techniques.

When deciding on the design for her bodypaint Slonina states, "I am the type of bodypainter that really likes to plan ahead. I research images, do a sketch and custom cut stencils in preparation for my body art. But my normal working method doesn't really suit Bodypainting Day, where part of the fun is being spontaneous and organic and reacting to the energy of your model.

I had a vision of wings, so I did a basic sketch the day before.

But it's hard to sketch when you aren't sure if you will be painting a man or woman, because this year the models were randomly assigned to us that day.

I think it was destiny that I was given Bethani to paint because she is such an angel that my wing design perfectly suited her.

I improvised the design on her face and legs, and the shimmer of light coming out of her chest was definitely inspired by my model's unique energy."

Another body painting artist at last year’s body painting day was Breanna Cooke who can turn a mere mortal into a riveting creature, a formidable looking dragon.

She created a masterful dragon design featuring a large pink heart encased in gold, gigantic owl shaped eyes floating in pools of white, blue body feathers and a powerful blue and white mask.

This year’s event will be at Washington Square Park which features the Washington Square Arch.

The Arc was modeled after the Arc de Triomphe and designed by architect Stanford White was erected in 1892.

The park also features a large outdoor fountain.

Throughout the years, Washington Square Park has served as a place for artists, performers and musicians.

On any given day you can enjoy the park as you watch jugglers go by on a unicycle, dancers twirling multi hoola hoops, painters capturing the mood of the park and the city on canvas, while chest players concentrate on their next move.

The park has also provided a back drop for many motion pictures including Ghostbusters II which featured a large ghost flowing through the Washington Square Park Arch.

In the movie Deep Impact, the arch, park and chest players were sweep away in a giant tsunamis wave that flooded New York City.

The park’s arch also served as a backdrop for the movies Barefoot in the Park, Don’t Eat the Daisies, Enchanted, Hair, When Harry Met Sally and many more.

In addition to New York City on July 22, 2017, BodyPainting Day will also take place on August 12, 2017 in Amsterdam, August 19,2017 in Berlin and conclude in San Francisco on October 14, 2017.

Bodypainting Day Goes Worldwide

Body painters and models in Central Park for first Bodypainting Day

Body painters, models, photographers gather under the mighty oak trees in Cenral Park for the first Bodypainting Day on July 26, 2014.


What started as one artist fight for artistic expression and the desire to bring art to the people has turned into several days of international events to celebrate the beauty of body painting.

Only three years ago, New York based artist Andy Golub fought for the right to body paint models, even nude models, on the city streets of New York and won. After winning his fight Golub, together with a group of body painting artists, created the first Bodypainting Day in New York City.

The first Bodypainting Day occurred on July 26, 2014, a very hot summer day in New York City, at the entrance to New York City’s Central Park.

Under those mighty, majestic oak trees at the entrance to Central Park at Columbus Circle, a group of very talented body painting artists and models assembled.

Little did they realize it at the time, but just like the little acorn that sprouts into a might oak tree, Bodypainting Day would continue to grow.

As the public watched, the artists began the process of turning the models into living, breathing works of art under a shady tree lined canopy.

Photographers looking to capture the event surrounded the group of artists and models.

The public was also becoming involved, with park goers and tourists alike edging closer to the artist and models to get a better look.

One of the goals of Bodypainting Day founder Andy Golub was to have the public see how body painting art was created and people were responding.

With smiles on their faces and cell phones held up high, both the natives and tourists alike were capturing the body painting process.

About mid-afternoon, the television news crews began to arrive.

Magee Hickey, a reporter for New York station WPIX actually spent the afternoon covering the event including a live feed during the evening news show.

Although there was a brief afternoon shower that could have proved disastrous for the body painted models, it to seem to past quickly by.

Later in the afternoon, the models in their newly painted body art were ready for a march down Broadway in the heart of New York City's Theater District.

In a town noted for native New Yorkers ignoring everything, people were really reacting to the parade of body painted models.

The body painted models turned Broadway into a giant stage, utilizing the street as props for them to perform on.

One model had a pair of oversized, toonish Betty Boop eyes painted on top of her eyelids. Whenever she would close her eyelids, these big body painted eyes would appear.

As they marched down Broadway, the body painted models would take to scaffolding around buildings as a stage to perform pole dance movements, with models hanging and twirling around while the photographers and tourist alike took in the show.

Even a traffic light proved to be a effective platform for a body painted model to hang from, while performing dance poses with her legs.

One model had a face body painted onto her back by renowed body painting artist and Skin Wars judge Craig Tracy. The face would come alive whenever the model moved her arms or shoulders, up or down creating a dramatic animated look.

On July 9, 2016, the third annual Bodypainting Day was celebrated in New York City, with one hundred models of all shapes and sizes, men and woman alike being painted by a very talented group of body painting artists.

The event has expanded so much over the past three years that it takes over Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in New York City.

Again, the public was invited to witness how these very creative body painters turn the models into living works of art.

Last year, was the first year that Bodypainting Day ventures abroad with the first Bodypainting Day taking place in Amsterdam.

This year Bodypainting Day will return to Amsterdam on August 20, 2016, with over 30 men and women models gathering at Museumplein, home to the city's most famous museums, including Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum to be painted by body painting artists.

One week later on August 27, 2016 is the first Bodypainting Day in Brussels.

Bodypainting Day will then return to the USA with the final event of the year being held in San Francisco on October 23, 2016.

Male and female models of all body shapes and sizes descended on the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in New York City.

Some very talented body painters, who would transform the models bodies into living, breathing works of art, joined the models.

As the models disrobed and the body painters prepared to paint them, they were surrounded by a sea of photographers.

From the public viewing area, people were taking pictures with there cell phones, while other people were stopping by to see what was going on.

Everyone seems to be enjoying the day, from the public, to the artists and to the models who all seem to be wearing big smiles that brightened up the day.

The location provided some stunding backdrops as a male model poses with female model Anne Brakel against a flowing fountain that was framed with a steel pavillion and lush green tree leaves.

Model Anne Brakel was painted in swirling rows of red, blue and gold strips which were created by body paining artist Xiomara Babilonia.

Body painting artist Andy Golub was busy painting a female fitness model shades of red, white and blue, with some gold and black added to his creation.

Besides body painting models on the streets of New York City, Andy Golub is the artist that envisioned and created the first Bodypainting Day in 2014.

Over the past three years, Bodypainting Day has become an international event with Bodypainting Day in New York City on July 9, Amsterdam on August 20 and San Francisco on October 23, 2016.

Andy Golub had been painting models on the streets of New York since 2009, but was often harassed the police and was kicked out of Times Square in 2009 for painting a male and female model wearing g-strings.

After contacting a lawyer, he decided to fight police harassment.

In 2011, Andy Golub painted fully nude models and was promptly arrested.

Although harassed by police and arrested for painting topless models on New York City streets, Golub won in court the right to body paint models in public, even nude models.

Subsequently, NYC legal department informed him that he could legally paint fully nude men or women, day or night, on any public street of New York City and all charges against him were dismissed.

There was a cornucopia of styles at this year’s Bodypainting Day.

One model's body painting captured a giant heart and white doves on the front with the legend "Love Your Self" and on the back was a tombstone to "Here Lie Self Hate".

Another model was painted in long, angle wings.

Cosplay and superheros were also represented with a blonde model sporting a toonish like superwoman costume with oversize red bowtie, white sailor t-shirt, blue short and pink knee high stocks.

The complete superwoman toonish outfit was created with body paint.

From very colorful abstract designs, to very elaborate detailed painting, all types of body painting art were represented.
