We are delighted that local artist Erica from Art Vision is returning to the Festival with fellow Body Painting Artists.

Check out the artist profiles to see their amazing work!  The artists will each create a unique design on a model at the festival on Saturday and Sunday only - after painstaking hours of work, you'll be able to see the finished models in the Bodypainting tent. They can also be seen early evening on the main stage.

We are very lucky to have these amazing artists also providing face painting (charges apply) for our lovely festival-goers.

Meet Tracy: 

Tracy started her body painting journey in 2017 at Bath Bodyart Weekend where she won the best newcomer for a collaboration bodypaint. Becoming a member of The South West Body Paint Project a few months later Tracy has enjoyed attending many bodypainting meetings and events and has entered various competitions including The Worlds Bodypainting Festival placing 65th out of 98.

Meet Emma: 

Emma Painty Harvey has been face painting professionally for 15 years and bodypainting for 7 years. She loves the expression of costume and art through Bodypaint and loves how different models interpret the work. It truly is one of the most exhausting yet fun ways to spend painting a design and watching a fantastic model bring a pencil sketch to life.
