What's the challenge?
To bodypaint a man.
What are you afraid of?
Being in an extremely awkward situation. Also, I'm afraid of doing a mess instead of an art work, I haven't touched a paintbrush in years.
How was the experience?
When I knew about Bodypainting Day I knew I had to face a fear during that amazing event. I thought about letting someone else paint my body but then I did the drawing class challenge, so in order to switch things around I volunteered to paint another human being. I randomly got a 75 year-old man as a model, fortunately he is also an amazing photographer and artist. So, I bought a make-up brush and covered him all in white paint first. I must admit, it was pretty awkward to paint naked guy, mostly while my husband, my brother and my in-laws are watching! But I did it in the most professional way and even enjoyed the experience way more than I thought! I think that you have to be pretty bold and #fearless in order to take off your clothes and show your body to the media and the whole world like that, so I wrote the word Fearless across his body and then, I added my logo to his back :) He seemed happy with his cool typography and he definitely stood out from the rest of the art. Thank you J. Wayne for letting me body-paint you!
Thank you Daniel for filming and editing this fun experience!
