Veronica: It’s all the same my supplies, but the human body is the canvass. Hi, I’m Veronica of watchmojo.com and today we’re gonna look closer at body painting. So can you tell us what body painting is? David: Body painting is using whatever you have to put on the skin of someone to create art. Some people used airbrush; some people used brushes, markers. Veronica: How did you go from being a graffiti artist to body painting? David: I think it’s just naturally, everyone is attracted by painting, so when you evolve to explain the different dimension and layers between what you do, a lot of people are actually honored to be part of that process of creating that feeling and that experience of being kind of intimate with an artist. By being close, being in that bubble, at the beginning was actually just the way to, to get close to different person, you know, but now it’s becoming a job. Veronica: And how does painting on the human body compare to painting on a canvass? David: When you’re able to find like beautiful creatures and beautiful beings, you know, it’s like painting already on a piece of art; pretty amazing to match those two, to match the physical proportion and skin colors and curves and attributes of different person with the composition of your painting. Veronica: So since you’re dealing with human bodies, a lot of people feel erotic and sensual to you, do you agree with this? David: I think sometimes it can be related to erotic. I think it’s the way you approach it, you know, some people are doing live painting in parties and it’s really just cool, you know, we have woman in bikini and stuff, but even there you have to be really careful. You don’t use the woman just an object. Veronica: How do you develop this technique if you wanna start in this field? David: To have models and to have people that trust you, you have to be able to present what you do. So you have to have a certain level of credibility and capacity to adapt to different forms. Veronica: What’s the best part of this form of art? David: To me it’s really intimate. Even if there’s no nudity and to that like being with someone in that mind frame and paint and be inspired while someone is looking at you because you’re painting her. That’s a beautiful thing. But the old process is beautiful when you meet the model, when you paint her, when you take the pictures, when you send the pictures, when you go take coffee with that person after, you know. All of that is wonderful.
